At the Kazan Helicopter Plant of the Russian Helicopters Holding (part of the Rostec State Corporation), the installation of the Ansat integrated helicopter simulator (KTV) was completed. After completion of commissioning, the simulator will pass a qualification assessment for certification according to international standards.
An integrated flight simulator for the Ansat helicopter was installed at the KVZ
Ansat helicopter complex simulator is installed in the building of the training complex of the KVZ Aviation Training Center (AEC) on the territory of the enterprise. The simulator was manufactured by M.A.K. LLC – A company engaged in the development and production of technical training aids for flight and technical personnel. After conducting a qualification assessment, AEC “KVZ” will receive permission from the Federal Air Transport Agency to operate the simulator.
The mathematical model of the simulator was developed on the basis of helicopter flight test data provided by the experimental design bureau of the Kazan Helicopter Plant. The appearance of the cockpit and instrumentation equipment of the simulator is fully consistent with the helicopter. The simulator is equipped with a visualization system, the visualization scene of the Sochi and Kazan region is fully implemented, including the KVZ flight test complex. The development and manufacture of the Ansat integrated simulator was carried out in accordance with the investment project “Development Concept for the Helicopters of Russia” Aviation Training Center of the Helicopter Plant.
“The popularity of Ansatov in the market is constantly growing, and therefore it became necessary to train representatives of operating organizations on this type of helicopter. In order to carry out a full training cycle, in addition to theoretical and practical training is also needed for the training of specialists. With the advent of the aviation training center KHP integrated simulator Ansat helicopter will be provided with a full cycle of quality retraining of pilots of “, – said the managing director of PJSC” Kazan helicopter plant ” Yuri Blank vgarov .
Soon, civil pilots will begin training on the simulator. The training will be conducted by experienced instructors at the Aviation Training Center.
The KVZ training center is also equipped with the Mi-8MTV helicopter complex simulator. The cockpit of the simulator is adapted to simulate pilot training at night with night vision goggles. In addition, the simulator is equipped with a vibro-acoustic installation that simulates the vibration and sounds of a helicopter, depending on the flight mode and conditions.
Kazan Helicopter Plant Aviation Training Center was established in 1995. Over the 20-year history of the center, almost 9,000 specialists have been trained here. The center conducts retraining and advanced training courses for specialists in flight and engineering personnel. Teachers constantly improve their skills and undergo internships at leading training centers in Russia as well as abroad, have personal certificates of aviation manufacturing companies. AEC KVZ provides training for helicopters such as Mi-8/17, Ansat. In the future, it is planned to create a similar training program for the Mi-38 helicopter.
