Bell 407 Series Training Program Highlights

  • We offer Bell 407 instruction on a flight training device (FTD) qualified to Level 7 by the FAA, bringing new realism and cost-effective options to your training. We pioneered and exclusively offer Level 7 training technology.
  • Using our high-fidelity graphics package, our FTD features special visual scenes and effects to give Bell 407 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.
  • Scenario-based training includes prevention of CFIT accidents, high-density altitude training, realistic VMC to IMC with deteriorating conditions and confined landing sites.
  • Initial and recurrent training both emphasize skills and strategies essential to surviving inadvertent IMC.
  • Scenario-based lesson plans developed by experienced Bell 407 pilots.
  • Our stand-alone Surviving Inadvertent IMC course gives you the tools you need to react appropriately in the first critical moments when you encounter unexpected weather conditions, as well as successful strategies to ensure that flights conform to plan and don’t exceed pilot or equipment limitations.
  • FlightSafety helped pioneer Federal Aviation Administration Level D full flight simulation for helicopters, and we’re helping to pioneer the next revolution in helicopter training with Level 7 flight training device simulation.
