Bell 407GXP Training Program Highlights

  • This is the world’s first Bell 407GXP full flight simulator, bringing simulation training – an essential component of pilot training in every other segment of aviation – to 407GXP operators.
  • Our Level D simulators allow night-vision goggle training for high-fidelity, low-light training scenarios.
  • Using our high-fidelity graphics package, simulators feature 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.
  • Mission-specific training tailors scenarios to your particular operation, including parapublic and air medical as well as offshore and executive transport.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bell 407GXP training courses:
    – 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
  • FlightSafety’s new Master Aviator Program is available to Bell 407GXP 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 Bell 407GXP 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)
