Norwegian Air Ambulance AS (NLA – Norsk Luftambulanse), Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH
(RST) and Norwegian Competence Centre Helicopter AS (NCCH) celebrate inauguration of the
NCCH training center in Stavanger/Norway.
Establishing an Airbus H145 Level D Full-Flight Simulator is one of the key measures to increase
operational safety of the air ambulance service in Norway. Following this idea, NCCH has established
their first training center in close cooperation with the Norwegian air Ambulance AS and the German
simulator manufacturer Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH to provide most sophisticated training
for pilots and crew members. The cooperation between customer and simulator manufacturer has
proven to be very efficient, bringing the new Full-Flight Simulator to a technology standard for the
interaction of flight- and medical crews like never before.
On October 10th, 2018 NCCH opened their doors for customers, partners and friends to celebrate the
inauguration of their Next-Generation Training Center.
Dr. Roman Sperl, Chairman of the Board of NCCH and RST´s CEO delivered the inaugural speech
introducing the partner companies that contributed to the development of the brand new training
center. Erlend Segtnan, NLA Pilot and Project Leader expressed the need to provide most realistic
Full-Flight Simulator training for NLA helicopter crew who will now be able to train their demanding
missions in the operational environment they fly in daily.
During the course of the event the guests received technical information on the Airbus H145 Level D
Full-Flight Simulator and NCCH training solutions and were given the opportunity to take a seat in the
The highlight of the event, however, was the thrilling demonstration of networked simulation. Two
military flight crews were able to fly their missions through a network connection between RST´s Full –
Flight Level D H145 simulators located at the ADAC HEMS Academy in Bonn/Hangelar, Germany
and NCCH Training Center in Stavanger, Norway.
This enabled both crews to fly multi-ship scenarios, fully integrating both crews into a team
exchanging video and audio communication through a networked environment.
After their 2,5h mission, both crews reflected positively on its outcome, especially emphasizing the
stability of the network connection, the quality of the flight simulation and highlighted the realistic and
immersive Night-Vision Goggle stimulation. The crews were able to use their own Night-Vision
Goggles and flight-gear without modification.
