The H1000 AATD simulator features a glass cockpit based on the Bell 505, including its console, systems, procedures and flight controls. It is also equipped with an entrol G1000 replica that is able to reproduce normal, abnormal and emergency operating procedures that can be accomplished at the appropriate AATD scope.

With different customization options to fill the needs of customers, the H1000 features pilot’s flight controls, fibreglass resistant cockpit, a compact instructor station and entrol 3TV immersive visual system.

The Bell 505 helicopter is known for its flexibility and versatility to perform in a wide variety of situations, such as initial helicopter training, external load missions, charter flights or tourism, which reflects how agile and adaptable the helicopter can be.

“With the release of this new device, we want to increase the offer of high-quality helicopter AATD simulators in the North American market. We believe the H1000 will be an indispensable training tool for helicopter academies in the near future,” states Nacho Navacerrada, sales director of entrol.

Additionally, entrol has also announced the opening of a new Maintenance Center in Denver, Colorado. This expansion has been performed in collaboration with Sunny Communications, who has provided entrol’s team with part of the facilities and equipment required.

This new maintenance center will also include entrol’s U.S. showroom, featuring Sunny Communications’ entrol H11 FTD Level 5 simulator, based on the EC135.

From this maintenance center, entrol’s personnel, formed in entrol’s base in Madrid, solves and coordinates possible bugs, offers remote and telephonic maintenance support and delivers spares for U.S.-time zone customers.

"With this new U.S-based maintenance center we want to fulfill the needs of the American market with the efficiency expected from an US based corporation, ” states Luis Olarte, CEO and Co-Founder of Entrol. “We believe this is the next logic step to increase our presence in the American continent and continue the growth Entrol has been experiencing. Entrol is fully committed to maintaining a quality service after the sale of the equipment.”
