Elite Simulation Solutions has released a new personal helicopter simulator to meet customer demand.

The ELITE TH-50 is based on the single engine turbine Eurocopter AS-350 helicopter and uses Lockheed Martin visual graphics.

Users can fly in rain, snow, reduced visibility, turbulence, thunderstorms and variety of cloud conditions in day or night settings.

The ability to start and do start-up and shut-down procedures has been removed. Elite said it makes the operation simpler but it has kept most other malfunction capabilities.
