Two new full-motion helicopter simulators will soon be coming online at two FlightSafety International learning centers. An Airbus Helicopters EC135 simulator is expected to be up and running at FSI’s Dallas facility, followed by a Sikorsky S-92 level-D device at the company’s São Paulo center in the third quarter.

The EC135 simulator is equipped with a Garmin avionics suite that includes the GMX 200 multifunction display and Waas-certified GNS 430W and GNS 530W. It also features the SFIM two-axis autopilot. FlightSafety’s initial and recurrent training programs for the Airbus EC135 include aircraft systems, emergency and abnormal procedures, human factors and specialty training.

Like the EC135 device, the S-92 simulator will be equipped with FlightSafety’s Vital 1100 visual system, which depicts mission-specific imagery with improved scene content, environmental effects, dynamic shadowing and enhanced shading. In addition, the S-92 simulator has a Crewview glass mirror optical system, which enhances visual clarity and brightness while eliminating image degradation and distortion in the boundary areas inherent in traditional display systems. This enhances imagery of near-ground operations and provides increased fields of view–up to 310 degrees horizontally.
