SEA delivers EC135 simulator

14th March 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SEA has delivered helicopter simulator technology to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity as part of work to boost public engagement with the charity, the company announced on 14 March.

The EC135 simulator comprises a large curved screen in the cockpit and 42in touch screen monitor in the rear compartment. The system is housed in a trailer-mounted helipod.

Users of the simulator are able to experience a helicopter take-off, and learn about the aircraft, the aircrew, and the medical equipment onboard.

The simulator will be taken by the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity to locations throughout the year as part of its public engagement and fundraising activities.

The Internal fit-out of the helipod has been provided by Telford-based Torton Bodies. A licence for the operation of GL Studio on the touch screen has been donated by Antycip Simulation Systems.

According to the company, there is interest in the potential of the technology as a rear fuselage and aero medical training aid simulator.

Andy McGowan, SEA business development executive, said: 'We have supplied our simulation technology to military and civil customers around the world but this is the first time that we have carried out work for an air ambulance organisation.

'The technology enables public interaction with the airframe and its equipment and for them to gain a better understanding of the air ambulance service. It also holds considerable potential for training.'
