Coptersafety started the installation of its H125 Level D Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) at the end of 2018, and it is estimated to be ready for training in May 2019. The installation work is done in cooperation with the experts from TRU Simulation + Training, which is the provider of all Coptersafety’s new simulators. The evaluation and approval of the EASA compliance authorities will take place after the assembly of the helicopter simulator.

“With a new H125, FFS Level D Coptersafety can offer training scenarios and operational training for onshore single-engine helicopter operations in the same way that has already been seen in multi-engine helicopter operations. When the training is not limited to a set of emergencies, the training will be more efficient and realistic. Using flight simulators in training also reduces risks associated with high-risk training scenarios, e.g., flight training for a loss of hydraulic power,” stated Mikko Kallio, the head of Training and Development at Coptersafety.
