AT HELI-EXPO 2010 in Houston, Texas, the Civil Aeronautical Medical Institute (CAMI) – the medical certification, research, and education wing of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Aerospace Medicine – will offer demo rides on its HELO GAT Simulator at Static Area 24 & 25.
CAMI studies the factors that influence human performance in the aviation environment, finds ways to understand them, and then communicates that understanding to the aviation community. The HELO GAT is a â€œSpatial Disorientation Demonstratorâ€ with the performance characteristics of a light helicopter. It has realistic 140 degrees out the wind screen field of view and motion in the Pitch, Roll and Yaw axis simultaneously. This machine is capable of interactive and automated Spatial Disorientation Training profiles.
CAMI and the FAA Office of Aerospace Medicine invite you to stop by Static Area 24 & 25 to schedule a time to “give GAT-II a spin.” Each training period in the HELO GAT lasts approximately 15 minutes.
