Entrol has delivered a Level 5 simulator to Kaman Aerospace for its K-Max helicopter, which has been installed at the OEM’s Bloomfield, Connecticut site. 

The production of the K-Max heavy-lift rotorcraft resumed in 2015, and the new simulator will be used for transition training for the type, incorporated into the K-Max initial and recurrent flight training syllabus.  

The flight training device (FTD) will allow pilots to practice normal and emergency procedures, Entrol says.

‘As we continue to increase our fleet size, and expand the demand for training, the technology that Entrol has been able to incorporate into an FTD provides a complementary and effective tool for enriching our pilot training experience,’ Darlene Smith, VP and general manager of Kaman’s air vehicles division, said. 

‘This simulator is a milestone in Entrol, as it is the first to be installed in the USA. We are very proud that Kaman Aerospace has chosen us to develop their K-Max FTD Level 5 simulator,’ Luis Olarte, CEO of Entrol, added.
