Frasca to Provide Bell 407 FNPT II to Horizon Flight Academy

By Staff Writer | April 7, 2015

Horizon International Flight Academy LLC of the United Arab Emirates has placed an order with FRASCA International, Inc. of Urbana, Ill. for a Bell 407 Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer (FNPT) II (“simulator”). The simulator will be configured as a Bell 407 Helicopter and will feature Dual G500, Dual G430, FRASCA’s TruVision™ visual system with 6-channel (200 x 68 degrees) projected display system, and a custom database that features Abu Dhabi's Al Ain International Airport.

The simulator will perform in a multi-role capacity. During the general handling and emergency procedure phase, instructors will be able to demonstrate every task from pre-start/start to flight maneuvering and shutdown. Along with this, it will also allow demonstration of emergencies and their corresponding procedures for a safe recovery of the aircraft. During the instrument phase it will allow for a comprehensive, realistic IMC/IFR learning environment. The true value of the simulator in all roles is the ability to “freeze” the scenario for on-the-spot correction and feedback.
