The partnership will bring Thales' Reality H Level D full flight simulator (FFS) to the Chinese civilian helicopter training market. Speaking Thursday in Paris, Thales vice president Jean Jacques Guittard said there was a growing demand in China for helicopter pilot training, and also called China "one of the fastest growing aerospace markets in the world."
The simulator will have initial functionality with a Eurocopter EC135 cockpit, according to Thales.
