Simulation’s Helicopter Simulators provide realistic live fire training for both civil and military applications. Each simulator is customizable to each customer’s requirements and budget. Exacting engineering and design elements replicate the sizes and dimensions of the real-world aircraft, which enable firefighting and rescue crews to be prepared and trained to the highest level possible. Simulators in the helicopter category are also available as a fixed installation or mobile on a trailer.
The helicopter simulators are relatively small in size compared to our larger commercial and military aircraft models, yet have the possibility to contain many of the features of our larger simulators. Details such as door heights, door functions, seat pitches, cockpit layout, cargo compartments, ramps, hoists, engine locations and components, and the fuselage are in the same places they would encounter in a real aircraft. Weapons and munitions found on military helicopters can also be integrated into the simulator in order to train on emergencies simulating live ordinance. Elements of multiple aircraft manufactures can also be included in a single simulator, such as one side of the helicopter being an Airbus H-175 and the other side a Sikorsky S-92.
Immersed into the incredibly realistic simulator are the options for a multitude of different live fire scenarios both internally and externally such as fires in the seats, cockpit, cargo area, engines, wings, fuselage, landing gear, batteries, ground fuel spill fires, or any other specific area where a customer wants to train.
All of this is brought together with a state-of-the-art PLC computer control system utilizing the most advanced wireless full color control devices. This enables the instructor to have complete control over the scenario while at the same time being able to physically direct the firefighters and rescue personnel in correct tactics and procedures.
Besides having the helicopter in a fixed position, a very common customer option is to have the simulator in a mobile format. Supplied on a custom-built trailer that includes the LPG tanks, power supply, and ancillary equipment, most helicopter simulators can be towed to any location with a heavy-duty pickup truck. Dependent on model, the prop is either hoisted or wheeled off the trailer, the gas hoses and electrical cable hooked up, test-fired and safety checked - all in about 40 minutes! While there are limits to the number of fires and limitations to the use of LPG only, mobile simulators can offer a large range of fire scenarios and rescue training - all with the benefit of being able to be relocated to various training sites.
