AT Systems announced it will begin taking pre-order reservations for its patented in-aircraft IIMC/UIMC training system starting March 1, 2020. After receiving overwhelming interest at Heli-Expo, AT Systems is excited to offer the revolutionary training system to the civilian market starting in October 2020. Full production is scheduled to begin mid-year.
The innovative patented ATS Device is designed to be used in the aircraft for training decreased visual environments including Inadvertent IMC, brown out and white out conditions. The system limits visibility, in half mile increments, and creates an environment conducive to visual illusions. Coupled with the natural forces of the aircraft, this leads the pilot to vestibular and proprioceptive illusions that cause Spatial Disorientation.
“Many fatal helicopter accidents have been attributed to spatial disorientation in reduced visibility.” said Tyson Phillips, AT Systems co-founder. “In-aircraft training in limited visibility conditions is critical for effective spatial disorientation training and awareness and needs to be trained frequently. The patented safety system allows reduced visibility training to be conducted safely, keeping the occupants and aircraft safe. For a limited time, we are accepting reservations without deposit to introduce our training solution to the industry.”
AT Systems’ training and support program uses the ATS Device as a corner stone of the program. It is designed to be affordable and is customized to meet the individual needs of the operator. AT Systems provides two options. Small operators have the option to participate in a shared program which provides 30 days per quarter to complete training with their pilots. Larger operators may choose the shared program or can participate in the year-round program. Each package can be customized to cater to both helmet and non-helmeted operators and is priced according to the level of participation.
Along with quarterly updates of accident scenarios derived from real world accidents, the annual training and support program will include best practices from all areas of the helicopter industry and maintenance of equipment. The training program is updated quarterly to keep the scenario-based training fresh, relevant, and realistic.
AT Systems is beginning to collect and publish personal accounts of Spatial Disorientation. You can become part of the solution, share your Spatial Disorientation story and read others stories of survival: www.dvestories.com
