The Starspeed synthetic training device is an Elite S623T FNPT II simulator based on the AS355 Twin Squirrel, holding CAA approvals. It 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 GTN750 and weather modelling which includes rain, ice and snow.

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.



Starspeed Training are delighted to announce the purchase of the UK’s first H145 D3 FTD3 to be based at our headquarters in Kemble. Available for dry and wet lease, it is planned to arrive during Q2/2024.

After 8 months of research, we are pleased to be working closely with Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH and RS Flight Systems GmbH to ensure the best quality product. Keep an eye on our news page for updates.



Ahead of the H145 D3 FTD3, Starspeed's latest acquisition is a fully interactive touchscreen emulator. The Avionics Desktop Trainer is ideal for use during ground school, prior to and post simulator sorties, for standalone refresher training, and cockpit familiarisation. A vital part of Starspeed’s H145 courses, this is also available for lease to any customer requiring cockpit familiarity, starts/stops, emergencies, refresher flights (especially on Helionix) prior to tests and visits to overseas simulators.

The Avionics Desktop Trainer is available for hire with or without an instructor. You will need a relevant IOS certificate to use it, or training can be provided.
