RST’s newest Airbus H135 full flight simulator was initially qualified to the highest standard Level D by the German Federal Aviation Office (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt / LBA) according to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations. The most modern FFS helicopter type H135 is thus ready for training at the major training location of Lufthansa Aviation Training GmbH (LAT) in Frankfurt.
The simulator is the perfect complement to the H145 FFS D, which has been in operation at LAT since summer 2020. Smoothly exchanging the H135/H145 cockpits utilizing RST’s advanced roll-on-roll-off system allows most convenient application of both configurations within the same simulator. No need to mention that the holistic roll-on-roll-off approach can be adapted to any other rotary or fixed-wing platform.
Since air rescue night missions are increasing the modern helicopter FFS H145/H135 is particularly suitable for training essential flight situations in a realistic atmosphere. In addition, the FFS is equipped with a mixed-reality Third Crew Member Station to simulate how to abseil from a helicopter with the entire crew. The simulator includes step 2 and 3 (switchable) of Helionix® in both configurations
“Pilot training is of great importance for flight safety. Our approach is to specialize in the requirements of rescue helicopter crews that must be optimally prepared and thus trained for any situation in any weather”, states Dr. Roman Sperl, CEO of RST.
“I am very proud of the entire team who achieved qualification on first attempt. This simulator is proven to meet highest training standards and is even exceeding requirements given by EASA”, he adds.
