Entrol's A18 simulator was certified as FNPT II MCC at the Heli Protection Europe (HPE) training center in Rieti RI, Italy. Entrol says this is the first FNPT II MCC simulator based on a Piaggio Avanti II (often used for transport, FLIR, SAR and military purposes) that is installed in Europe.

The simulator's cockpit is a replica of a Collins ProLine 21 with WX-radar, FMS and ESIS. It has a cylindrical visual with a 3-channel projection system and a high-resolution database of Italy.
