Era Training Center LLC, Lake Charles, LA has received Level 6 Qualification for their Frasca built AS-350 Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD). The AS-350 along with Era's EC-135 FSTD a Bell 206 FSTD built by Frasca for Bell Helicopter Customer Training Academy in Fort Worth, TX are three of the first Level 6 helicopter FSTDs under the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA) new part 60 rule.

Frasca International performed all aspects of the project including flight testing, model development and certification. Era Training Center provided the helicopter for flight testing as well as aircraft, pilots and subject matter expertise.

"Frasca is an industry leader in flight simulation and has been able to obtain qualification for several flight training devices over the years," said John Frasca, VP Frasca International, Inc. "Our success in the helicopter market is in part due to our ability to collect our own simulator data packages. Airframe manufactures are frequently not able or willing to offer simulation data packages. As result Frasca has invested and developed its own flight test capability. This allows us to offer a turn key simulation solutions at a very competitive price."
