Professional Simulation-Based Training for Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3 and EC130 T2

FlightSafety now offers comprehensive simulation-based training for Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3 at a new helicopter training facility in Denver, Colorado. Training takes place on a new FS1000 Level D simulator, designed and built by FlightSafety. Our highly qualified and experienced instructors, exclusive advanced-technology and integrated training systems help ensure proficiency and safety. Training is designed to meet the training needs of all AS350 B3 operators, offering pilots the resources to attain proficiency and qualification. In addition, by December 2017, we will be installing a FlightSafety Level D full flight simulator for Airbus Helicopters EC130 T2 training at the center, available for dry lease only.

Program Highlights

  • Our Level D simulator allows night-vision goggle training for high-fidelity, low-light training scenarios.
  • Using our high-fidelity graphics package, the simulator features special visual scenes and effects to give operators the most relevant training available.
  • Simulation training can incorporate photo-realistic scenes such as urban landscapes, offshore oil rigs, and brownout and whiteout conditions.
  • FlightSafety helped pioneer Federal Aviation Administration Level D full flight simulation for helicopters.
  • These are the world’s first Level D qualified full flight simulators for AS350 B3 and EC130 T2, bringing simulation training – an essential component of pilot training in every other segment of aviation – to AS350 B3 and EC130 T2 operators.
  • Mission-specific training tailors scenarios to your particular operation, including parapublic and air medical as well as offshore and executive transport.
  • Our full flight simulators meet a wide range of training objectives that can’t be met in flight training devices and exceed the training parameters possible in aircraft-based instruction.
  • A new National Transportation Safety Board guidance for airborne law enforcement specifically recommends integrating simulation-based training, especially to train for Inadvertent IMC events. FlightSafety’s training stresses the singular importance of IIMC avoidance and survival training – instruction that can only be effectively taught in a simulator.
  • FlightSafety training courses for AS350 B3:
    – Initial and recurrent pilot
    – Night Vision Goggle
    – Inadvertent IMC survival and avoidance
    – Patrol and surveillance mission profiles
    – Pilot and Tactical Flight Officer (TFO) crew training
    – Mission-specific training tailors scenarios to your particular operation, including parapublic and air medical as well as offshore and executive transport.
  • FlightSafety’s new Master Aviator Program is available to Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3 operators. This program builds on your proven flying abilities with challenging training that expands your skills and prepares you to react correctly to a broad range of demanding and unexpected situations.
  • FlightSafety’s exclusive Advanced Pilot Courses, now available to Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3 operators, are based on analysis of actual incidents and help develop solid flying skills, swift and accurate decisions and precise crew communication. These courses include:
    – Advanced Helicopter Crew Resource Management (CRM)
    – Advanced Helicopter Surviving Inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC)
