Heli Protection Europe (HpE) has purchased an entrol H21 FNPT II MCC helicopter simulator, which is based on the Bell 412. This simulator will be installed in Italy and it will be used for a fully new and advanced pilot training process, including studies related to Human Performance and Limitation, Crew Resource Management and the implementation of new procedures.
This is the first H21 FNPT II MCC to be manufactured by entrol. It will be equipped with a fully functional hardware replica of the Bell 421 helicopter. This improves the pilot immersion during training by simulating the cockpit and systems of the real aircraft.
