Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant introduces Mi-171 simulator

13th February 2013 - 14:10 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russian Helicopters has announced that the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant has introduced a Mi-171 simulator built by CSTS Dinamika. The simulator was acquired to meet the high demand for highly qualified personnel and engineering support staff as the production volume of the Mi-171 aircraft grows.

The flight trainer is based on an actual Mi-171 cabin and features realistic on-board systems. It is designed to train on a complete range of flying and navigational skills in all weather, and also to train crews on how to respond in the event of aircraft or equipment failure and other emergency situations.

According to the company, the simulator training exercises were based on the summer testing of the Mi-171 by a group of constructors and pilots from Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, and as a result are as realistic as possible. Early feedback from users of the simulator has been positive.

Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant can provide a complete training package for staff of helicopter customers including simulation and flight training on the client’s own helicopters. The Mi-171 simulator at the Ulan-Ude plant also helps helicopter operators across Siberia and Russia’s Far East to optimise their costs on obligatory refresher training for crews, which are essential for flight safety.
