Merlin Simulation is pleased to announce the approval of its truly affordable, new generation Pro-Series R-22/44 AATD. The FTD may be housed in a trailer or a dedicated room within the training facility.
New Generation means new features incorporating advanced technology, superior visual imagery, and true flight modeling previously found only in high end training devices.
A distortion free visual of near 180Â° field of view is the largest in the industry for this class of product. Coupled to an aeromodel developed through a rigorous flight test program â€œthe device is not only an accurate representation of the flight characteristics of an R-22/44, but a pleasure to fly. Given the quick responsiveness and steep learning curve of helicopter training, the new R-22 AATD finally provides the necessary feel, look, and flight characteristics of the actual 300C for serious training,â€ reported Ken Zimmerman, President of Merlin Simulation.
Other advanced features include:
â€¢ High Fidelity graphics
â€¢ World visual and navigation databases
â€¢ High Fidelity Cockpit
â€¢ High Fidelity Systems replication, including engine start up and shut down
â€¢ A new easy to use instructor station with record/playback
â€¢ A high fidelity replication of aircraft systems failures
â€¢ Proper engine start up & shutdown
â€¢ Simulated Garmin 530 GPS/Nav/Comm unit (moving map)
â€¢ Unique instructor and testing tools
The reconfigurable Pro-Series also includes the S300 introduced at HeliExpo 2009 that may be upgraded to include the Schweizer S333. Other models are available upon request.
