Kazan Helicopters of the Russian Helicopters holding company (part of Rostec State Corporation) has received qualification for their Ansat helicopter simulator.

“We consider the certification of the Ansat helicopter simulator according to ICAO standards as one of the most important achievements of our company,” said Managing Director of Kazan Helicopters, Yuri Pustovgarov. “Our Aviation Training Center is now waiting for the first intake of students to pass the simulator training in August 2020. The training will be organized to foreign customers: pilot training is included in the price of the helicopter in all export orders.”

The simulator model was developed on the basis of helicopter flight test data provided by the design bureau of the Kazan Helicopters and the cockpit and interior of the simulator are completely authentic. The Ansat simulator is equipped with a visualization system that provides full visibility from the pilot's seat. It can be used to reproduce two distinct areas: the city of Kazan along with the Kazan Helicopters flight test center, as well as the city of Sochi.

The Ansat simulator was designed and produced as part of the investment project "Development Concept for the Aviation Training Center of the Kazan Helicopter Plant of Russian Helicopters Holding Company".
