The Federal Air Transport Agency has certified the Russian Helicopters holding aviation training center in Ulan-Ude. He was given the right to provide services for theoretical and practical retraining of the flight and technical personnel of the Mi-8AMT and Mi-171 civilian helicopters. The certificate issued by the Federal Air Transport Agency confirmed the compliance of the aviation training center with the Federal Aviation Rules in force in Russia and the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The Aviation Training Center operates at the production facilities of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (U-UAZ JSC), one of the largest manufacturers of helicopter equipment in Russia. The center is provided with high-class teachers of theory, has a comprehensive simulator of the Mi-8AMT / Mi-171 helicopter. Several training helicopters, in accordance with the new requirements of the Federal Aviation Rules, are registered in the register of civil aircraft of the Federal Air Transport Agency.
“Two years have been preparing for certification. The received document allows us to significantly expand the existing training and education program for flight personnel. U-UAZ civil helicopter operators were able to get the whole range of services in one place – theoretical, simulator, practical training. According to the holding’s strategy for ensuring flight safety, the material base of the center will continue to be improved to develop practical skills in the use and repair of aviation equipment for students “,” said the managing director of U-UAZ JSC Leonid Belykh .
The material and technical base of the training center includes equipped classrooms, stands, visual aids. The teaching staff of the ALC includes first-class pilots with thousands of hours of practical flying. The complex simulator of the Mi-8AMT / Mi-171 helicopter is made on the basis of a real cabin interior with simulated operation of all on-board systems. It allows you to work out the full range of piloting and navigation tasks in all flight modes in simple and difficult weather conditions, as well as testing the crew’s actions in the event of aircraft equipment failure, errors in piloting technique and other emergency situations.
The basis of modern programmed flight tasks for the new simulator was the flight tests of the Mi-171 helicopter, which were carried out by a group of designers and pilots of U-UAZ JSC before the acquisition of the complex. Thanks to this, the simulator received a unique quality – the “flights” on it are as close as possible to flying a real helicopter.
