Loft Dynamics AG (formerly VRM Switzerland), creator and operator of the world's first and only virtual reality (VR) simulators qualified by a major aviation regulator, today announced the sale of a VR Airbus H125 training device to Multicom based in Sicily, Italy. Helixcom – a subsidiary of Multicom - will use the simulator to establish a training and competence center for helicopter pilots. This is Loft Dynamics' first simulator in Italy, demonstrating the region's independent demand for such realistic training devices.

No place is too remote

Helixcom will install and operate a Loft Dynamics H125 training device at their home base south of Caltanissetta, in the heart of Sicily, Italy. This showcases the versatility of the devices, as they can be efficiently operated in even the most remote locations. Pilots will no longer have to spend valuable time traveling to distant simulator centers. Having an on-site simulator also enables flexible scheduling of training sessions and checks, irrespective of weather conditions. An exemplary case is Air Greenland, which has already successfully integrated the Loft Dynamics training device into their operations in Nuuk, Greenland.

Helixcom currently operates five Airbus H125 Helicopters at their own airfield south of Caltanissetta, with three of them owned by their parent company, Multicom. By acquiring a Loft Dynamics simulator, Helixcom aims to establish a comprehensive training and competence center for helicopter pilots. This center will provide pilots with realistic training experiences, leveraging the numerous advantages of simulator training, including the execution of abnormal procedures and the ability to handle demanding scenarios through scenario-based exercises.
