Loft Dynamics is partnering with HMotion — a joint venture between Airbus Helicopters and ADAC HEMS Academy — through the delivery of two Airbus H145 VR flight simulation training devices (FSTDs), which will be installed at a new simulator center in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. This modern training center will offer a wide range of training courses for helicopter personnel, enabled by Loft Dynamics’ technology.

Loft Dynamics is developing an Airbus H145 VR training device containing the simulator date package of Airbus Helicopters to accurately replicate functions and flight behavior. As first customer, HMotion is acquiring the new Loft Dynamics virtual reality simulator, which represents the four-tons-class twin-engine helicopter H145. The technology offers features that allow pilots to perform proficiency checks (LPC and OPC) and to receive training credits for the relevant type rating, including normal flight procedures and emergency situations. Pilots can practice instrument flying and train towards instrument ratings. This compact training solution also allows pilots to practice demanding flight maneuvers and realistic mission training in a safe environment, benefiting from the know-how of ADAC HEMS Academy. 

HMotion and Loft Dynamics have agreed to develop a training concept based on virtual reality technology to train pilots in both single and multi-crew concepts. In the future, a helicopter hoist operation module will enable entire flight crews to realistically practice normal and emergency procedures. The concept helps to acquire fundamental skills and develop competencies through challenging scenario-based training sessions. The entire system, including a highly dynamic six-degrees-of-freedom motion platform and a full replica cockpit, makes pilots feel as if they are flying a real helicopter.
