HUTC certifies Entrol H135 T2+ simulator
The Heli-Union Training Center (HUTC) has certified its Entrol H135 T2+ FTD Level 2 simulator, expanding its helicopter simulator training programmes.
The simulator includes a spherical visual and a vibration system that enables pilots to experience real effects in the cockpit such us vortex ring, turbulence or ground contact.
The simulator has 3-axis autopilot, ACAS, weather radar and dual GTN 750 to provide performance-based navigation training. Another key feature is the high resolution database of the southwest of France and Angoulême, with satellite imagery, oil rigs, boats, detailed mountain areas and hospitals.
Herv Maugis, deputy Director of HUTC, said: ‘We are very happy with our decision to contract Entrol for the development of our simulator which is becoming a key factor in our business development.
‘We are convinced that the FTDs are going to be the perfect tool for training light or even medium-size helicopters.’
