Aurora, Oregon-based air ambulance provider Life Flight Network has selected Frasca (Booth 7724) to provide an advanced aviation training device (AATD) for its Bell 407GXi helicopters. The device will feature Frasca’s “Simplicity” software graphical user interface, electric control loading, and flight and systems simulation to train normal, abnormal, and emergency procedures.

The AATD also will include Frasca’s TruVision global image generator with three-channel, direct-view projected visual display system with the company’s worldwide visual database. In November 2019, Bell and Life Flight announced a purchase agreement for four Bell 429 light twins and four Bell 407GXi singles.

Life Flight will use the helicopters to service portions of its network that includes 31 bases throughout the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West. The company is the largest nonprofit air medical transport service in the U.S.
