Entrol, together with partner HTM Group, completed a successful flight test campaign for H145 D-3, as part of the development of their H145 FTD Level 3 simulator.

Luis Olarte, Entrol’s CEO, said: “It became clear quite quickly that many of our customers would switch to the new five-blade model and that other operators would also rely on this aircraft in the future. The demand for a high-quality flight simulator was correspondingly high.

"We are therefore extremely pleased to have a reliable partner in the HTM Group, which not only has the necessary approvals and instrumentation but also already has the H145 D-3 in its fleet,"

Andreas Schühle, Managing Director of the EASA Part 21J development operation and responsible for HTM Group’s business development, said: "Such a project is always something special and we are all the more proud that the flight test campaign could be successfully completed.

"The entire HTM Group was closely involved. We are already looking forward to testing flying the finished simulator from our partner Entrol.
