Sikorsky S-70/S-70A Training Program Highlights

  • Our West Palm Beach Learning Center provides factory-authorized training for commercial and foreign military sales of the S-70 A/L.
  • S-70 instructors offer unparalleled experience with S-70 helicopters.
  • We pioneered FAA Level D full flight simulation for helicopters. Our VITAL X visual system creates realistic displays that offer a 60-degree vertical field of view, brownout/whiteout and an endless selection of weather conditions and locations. The S-70 simulator is night-vision-device capable as well as equipped with firefighting controls for specialty training. Combined with audio, the experience delivers realistic physical sensations that warrant Level D certification from the FAA.
  • Our long-term partnership with Sikorsky – including regular teleconference and face-to-face meetings to discuss relevant issues – provides you with the most current and comprehensive training available, ensuring access to the latest technical information and service bulletins.
  • Our Level D S-70 simulator (when configured for the S-70L) features scenario-based training that will match the desired geography for every Customer, database and Customer-specific heliports. The simulator realistically duplicates environments, allowing pilots to experience situations that would be too dangerous, too impractical or impossible to practice in an aircraft. This includes major systems failures, heavy icing and power loss under hot and high conditions.
