HELISEVEN GmbH, located in Mannheim, Germany, based in the cities of Stuttgart and Augsburg, has acquired a pre-owned H11 FNPT II MCC Entrol simulator.

The device is based on the Eurocopter EC-135 and is located at HELISEVEN's ATO in Augsburg, near to Munich in Germany.

Heliseven has also signed a maintenance contract and ordered an upgrade to PBN approach with Dual GTN 750 / 650. This upgrade will increase the capability of the device to ensure that it can use during the initial IFR training.

Harald Lohoff, HELISEVEN's project manager for simulation and training in Augsburg, commented: “Heliseven is a mid-sized ATO with currently around 55 PPL-H and CPL-H students. To extend our training portfolio to IFR basic training and MCC training, we have acquired a Eurocopter EC-135 helicopter. Consequently, we were interested in complementing this helicopter with a synthetic training device that could achieve the highest level of credits for training.”

“The new avionic package with the Garmin GTN 650/750 will give us a training device that has precisely the same cockpit arrangement as our training helicopter. This similarity will be beneficial as IFR students are learning the basics with the same equipment that will they use during real training flights.”
