Korean CAA certifies Entrol's AW109 sim
The Korean civil aviation authority has officially certified Entrol’s H19/AW109 flight training device (FTD) Level 5 simulator purchased by Helikorea.
This FTD is the first Entrol simulator to be installed in South Korea, and will be based in the city of Daejeon.
The system features a cylindrical visual system, vibration system and South Korean database with satellite imagery and mission scenarios.
It will be used for initial and instrument flight rules training, as well as to practice emergency procedures and mission operations.

A sequence of damaging news stories emerged about the RAF in August while the UK was left without a functioning government.
