The Airbus Helicopters EC145 simulator is scheduled to enter service in March 2020 at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Denver, Colorado. While it will be used primarily to support Air Methods, FlightSafety will also offer training using this new device to other operators of the aircraft. 

The simulator that is being built for the Leonardo AW139 is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.  It will enter service at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, early in 2021 following Level D qualification.

The advances in technology incorporated into the new EC145 and AW139 simulators include FlightSafety’s VITAL 1150 visual system and CrewView collimated glass mirror display.
