The simulator is a replica of the Airbus EC135 P2+ and offers an extremely high level of simulation, according to HeliCentre.

The cockpit is equipped with dual GTN 750, it features a vibration system and the six-projector spherical visual system offers an unprecedented realistic training experience.

The high-resolution database with satellite imagery, mission scenarios, hospitals and confined areas delivers a quality of which many other installed simulators don’t offer.

“This state-of-the-art simulator enables helicopter pilots to acquire high quality training at reasonable costs. It is fully EASA certified by the Dutch CAA as a FNPT III MCC training device, and it will be upgraded to an FTD Level 3 later this year,” said Jeroen Peddemors, HeliCentre’s CEO. “We have chosen this device as it fits the HeliCentre high quality training portfolio seamlessly, and it instantly adds value to our ME, IR and type rating training. Our FNPT III MCC simulator enables students to commence the best helicopter courses available in the market.”

  1. This article uses the term ‘simulator’ repeatedly; this is NOT a Full Flight Simulator – it is a Flight Training Device. Both EASA and the FAA are very clear about what constitutes a simulator versus an FTD and what training credit can be received for each.

    1. Your statement is correct Paul but I wonder what you are trying to say here.

      EASA defines the acronym FSTD, which stands for “Flight Simulation Training Device”. From a linguistic perspective, this means that the word “Simulator” is correctly used is this article. EASA further divides “FSTD” into FNPT, FTD and FFS (contrary to FAA).

      I agree that every pilot, instructor and flight school should be aware what training credit can be received on each type of simulator but every head of training in the world knows that already 😉
