Leading edge technology for student pilot training

Vertical Mission Training, the helicopter operator based on passion and enthusiasm, is going to establish a helicopter simulator training center in the middle of the Ruhr region, Germany. A Robinson R22 FNPT II will be available for student pilots to learn basic maneuvers such as attitude flying, traffic pattern work and hovering. “Another advantage of this concept is to train emergency procedures safely and consistently. VRM Switzerland has proven in scientific research that it is possible to learn such skills on the simulator to apply them in the real helicopter without adaptation.

More realistic emergency training than in reality

The “flat ship” of the center is an EASA qualified Airbus H125 FTD Level 3. The simulator represents the flight experience of the real helicopter, which is confirmed by Airbus Helicopters factory instructors and test pilots. Thanks to the combination of ​​a virtual reality 3D visual system, a highly dynamic movement platform and the realistic flight behavior, the system received the seal of quality as an Airbus approved training device. All this enables execution of license and operator proficiency checks on the flight simulation training device (FSTD). In scenario-based training pilots can develop their competencies to improve their flight safety. Compared to trainings and checks in the real helicopter, the simulator allows to manage emergency situations as they would happen. “With VRM Switzerland we found our technology partner to bring our training to the next level and create room for new influences in established concepts,” said Robby Jansch, flight instructor at Heli NRW.
