The ELITE TH22SM features a 3 DOF (pitch, roll and heave) motion system. According to ELITE President / CEO, John Dixon, “Adding motion to the helicopter trainer adds significant training benefits to new students and even experienced rotary wing pilots. Motion cues plus the visual motion makes this the perfect AutoRotation trainer … from negative and positive “G’s” on entry, to the initial flare and touchdown ground effects and contact. The high fidelity of this motion system makes it the perfect platform for learning to hover, practice hovering auto-rotations, quick stops, confined areas, operations slope, pinnacle landings and running landings. In Additions to VFR and IFR training, this platform makes an amazing emergency procedural trainer. Because of the accolades received at ALEA, ELITE will be offering the Motion option to its full line of turbine helicopter training devices as well. Typical ELITE with all training systems, this trainer offers the best “cost-to-benefit ratio” than any trainer in its class.
The Th22 AATD is FAA approved for Private, IFR, Commercial, ATP, IPC and currency credits.
