The Black Hawk at 40, a new era at Hillsboro Aviation, sim training at Coptersafety, HAC 2018 preview and more!
A joint venture between Precision Flight Controls (PFC) and Australia’s Ryan Aerospace has seen the development of a new, cost-effective Bell 206 helicopter simulator which has just received certification under Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules as an advanced aviation training device (AATD).
This product will be on display at I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30.
I/ITSEC is the world’s largest military simulation and training event.
Ryan Aerosapce is partnering with D-Box on booth #1149. D-Box provides world-class motion cueing actuators with six inches of travel providing very realistic motion and vibration cues.
The device is reconfigurable between the Bell 206 and Bell 407, but it can also be used as a generic rotary-wing training aircraft.
The unit comes with a full PC rack system complete with licensed software and instructor operator station (IOS), which allows users to create scenarios, set weather conditions, change time of day or night, select any airport and induce failures. The Garmin 530W is included with virtually full functionality.
There are also many options to choose from such as visual system (projection dome system or LCD panel display); avionics; and motion and vibration system, to name just a few.
This year at I/ITSEC, Ryan Aerospace is also partnering with Q4, which will be providing a projection dome and visuals with a 180-degree wrap-around view providing a very realistic and immersive environment.
Diamond Visionics are also involved, providing high-end visual software.
Customers can also enjoy fast delivery times due to a number of these units now being in stock and ready to go. Support staff are based around the world, and customized service level agreements can be offered in addition to standard warranty conditions.
The new fully certified H-206 by Precision Flight Controls and Ryan Aerospace is available right now.
