ELITE Simulation Solutions debuts of the TH22 piston helicopter primary flight training device at Sun N Fun 2014.
ELITE Simulation Solutions, in cooperation with Daedalus Technologies and Laminar Research introduces the newest addition to their fleet of helicopter training devices. From startup, run up to shut down, TH22 models the form, function and performance of the Robinson R22 piston helicopter. According to Wayne Keyes, ELITE Director of Business Development, “Our turbine helicopters have been very successful but we’ve had a lot of requests for a piston helicopter. Since Robinson is the largest manufacturer of civil helicopters in the world, it was a logical choice that this would be our first. The orientation and size of the visual display gives the correct spatial orientation for hover training, confined area landings, pinnacles, auto rotations and deceleration maneuvers. We also incorporated a dynamic audio tactile feedback system that totally immerses the pilot into helicopter seat-of-the-pants flying.”
