One-G simulation has added new capabilities to its Torrance 44 Augmented Training Platform (ATP), including SAR, head-up display, FLIR, tunnel-in-the-sky, longline and night vision goggle emulations.

The Torrance 44 is a training device based on the Robinson 44 helicopter, which merges virtual reality technology with flight simulation, creating a highly immersive augmented reality flight deck.

According to One-G, the new features can be used by operators in the military, government and commercial sectors.

Xylon Saltzman, CEO, One-G, said: ‘The Torrance 44 ATP is the ideal device on which to execute specific advanced skills training. Its virtual reality technology allows the pilot to experience a positive transfer of learning in each of the specific skills because the 360° field of view is equivalent to that of the actual aircraft.

‘Our customers told us what they wanted in a helicopter training device, and we are thrilled to be offering these additional features as options on new deliveries. Now the Torrance 44 goes well beyond being a fundamental trainer by additionally addressing the training needs of the advanced rotorcraft pilot.’
