Since its opening in 2012, the Helicopter Flight Training Center has seen continuous expansion, and recently added its first full motion simulator. The EC135 P2+ Level D Full Flight Simulator arrived from FlightSafety International’s DFW facility.
“We have anticipated the arrival of the full motion simulator and are very excited to begin utilizing it for training,” said Training Center Director Terry Palmer. The simulator is on schedule for certification in May and will be available for training in June. The co-launch customers were announced during HELI-EXPO 2014. Air Medical Group Holdings (AMGH) has a four-year training agreement, while California Shock Trauma Air Rescue Ambulance (CALSTAR) has a five-year agreement to use the EC135 simulator at the Helicopter Flight Training Center.
