The Helicopter Flight Training Center, a Metro Aviation company, is expanding its training options with the addition of a Frasca Bell 407 Level 7 Flight Training Device (FTD). The BH407 analog cockpit is capable of simulating normal and emergency operating conditions, allowing pilots to train for any situation.
Helicopter Flight Training Center Director Terry Palmer says she is excited about offering a Bell simulator and believes this is one more step to a safer industry. “Simulator training is a key element to safety, and we are excited to extend our reach to even more pilots.”
The cockpit is IFR-equipped, featuring a coupled autopilot capable of ILS, VOR and GPS/WAAS approaches. Eight projector screens provide spectacular visuals, including low, medium and high illumination NVG training.
“Frasca is proud to supply the Helicopter Fight Training Center with their Bell 407 Flight Training Device with NVG simulation, advanced visual system, on time delivery and Level 7 qualification,” said FRASCA International President John Frasca. “It is our goal to provide the best quality simulators available and support our customers’ training objectives.”
