FlightSafety International will soon offer simulator training for the Airbus EC145 helicopter. Currently under design and development, the new FS1000 simulator for the EC145 is expected to receive Level D qualification and enter service early in 2016.
The new FS1000 is equipped with FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system and Crewview glass mirror with a 200 x 60 degree field of view and 60-inch electric motion base. The VITAL 1100 provides highly detailed, mission-specific imagery with vastly improved scene content and environmental effects. It also provides over 12 million pixels of system resolution for a typical three channel, out-the-window field of view of 200 degrees horizontally. This increase in resolution capability offers a substantial improvement in visual acuity.
The FS1000’s software and hardware is tightly integrated across subsystems, allowing for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation. It includes the latest multi-core 64-bit architecture and supporting real-time tools. It also includes FlightSafety’s new multi-function Instructor Operating Station, which enhances training effectiveness by giving instructors a highly productive and efficient workspace equipped with an intuitive interface, scalable graphics and large multi-touch displays.
Training for the Airbus EC135 helicopter is currently offered at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, Texas. FlightSafety will open a new Learning Center in Colorado in 2016 that will provide training for the Airbus AS350 B2, Airbus EC130T2 and Airbus EC135.
