RS Flight Systems has been selected by Starspeed Training Ltd., UK, to provide the latest version of the H145D3 FTD3 F-light Line Training Device. Starspeed ATO (Authorised Training Organisation) has a proven track record in helicopter training for all pilots for more than a decade. After a comprehensive market analysis, Starspeed selected the F-light Line to enhance its pilot training programmes and provide students with a more immersive learning experience.

“F-light Line H145D3 FTD3 is equipped with leading-edge technology that replicates real flight scenarios and provides a realistic experience for pilots to practice and perfect their flying skills,” states Maximilian Rommel, RS Flight Systems CEO. “It comes with advanced features, including a cockpit simulator, flight dynamics, and (original GARMIN) navigation systems, allowing pilots to train in a safe and controlled environment.”

“The modular trainer is powered by REISER’s Level D Full-Flight Simulation software to guarantee the highest fidelity of flight model and avionics replication,” adds Dr. Roman Sperl, CEO Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH.

“Not only will implementing the new F-light Line Training Device enhance our training capabilities for our trainee helicopter pilots, through real-life flight simulation experiences, it will further allow us to extend the reach of our services and welcome new customers,” says Steve Godfrey, Head of Training at Starspeed Training Limited. “Whether an experienced HEMS pilot or first-time civilian flyer, we look forward to experiencing the enhanced capability of the new device.”

F-light Line H145D3 FTD3 is scheduled to go in operation in Q2 2024 at Starspeed Training at Kemble Aerodrome, Gloucestershire, UK.
