Flight Simulation

The synthetic training devices are Elite S623 and S623T FNPT II simulators. Both devices hold CAA approvals issued in accordance with JAR-FSTD (H)

The S623 is based on the AS 350, the S623 T is based on the AS 355 Twin Squirrel.

The twin has dynamic control loading which includes a trim sysytem with fully coupled autopilot functions, loading on the yaw pedals to simulate loss of hydraulic pressure, EFIS, intergrated Garmin 430 and weather modelling which includes rain, ice and snow.

Three Oil rigs in Morecombe bay and ships for deck landings have been modelled for added realism during training.

Both simulators are approved for 40 hours out of the 50 hours required on a full JAR 50 hour IR(H) course and 10 hours out of the 15 hours required on the FAA/ICAO to JAR IR(H) or QSP (Non procedural) course.

For the IRI(H) a maximun of 80% of the course flight requirements can be on the simulator.

Non approved training is also availble for refresher, instrument currency or Line Orientated Flight Training (LOFT)

LOFT Courses can be designed to meet customer requirements.
