The Starspeed synthetic training device is an Elite S623T FNPT II simulator based on the AS355 Twin Squirrel, holding CAA approvals issued in accordance with JAR-FSTD (H).

The simulator has dynamic control loading which includes a trim system 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.

Non-approved training is also available for refresher, instrument currency or Line Orientated Flight Training (LOFT). LOFT Courses can be designed to meet customer requirements.

The FNPT is fully approved for pilot courses; however, as a state of the art training device, it is much more than this. With its enhanced visual package and realistic cockpit configuration it is also an invaluable resource for helicopter technical crew members and is available for both wet and dry lease.

We are happy to provide bespoke programmes for observers, crew members and technicians along with automation and emergency procedures training. We also offer the simulator and its classroom for recruitment assessments, flight-integrated CRM and FAA IR recurrent training and testing.
