Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) has signed a letter of intent with Reiser Simulation and Training (RST) for the delivery of its first helicopter simulator, the company announced on 7 May.

The H145/H135 Level D full flight simulator (FFS) will support LAT to provide training for helicopter emergency medical service providers.

The new helicopter simulator will be equipped with an interchangeable cockpit in order to map both specifications of the H145 and H135 models. It will also be equipped with a third crew member station, where virtual reality technology will be used to simulate how to abseil from a helicopter.

The simulaotr will allow pilots to use their own night vision equipment to replicate real-mission scenarios. The simulator will provide 240° x 80° direct projection of moving images via high-resolution LED video projectors and an intuitive instructor operating station.

The new FFS will be deployed at LAT’s location in Frankfurt and is expected to come into operation in 2020.
