Working closely with its customer Helicopter Adventures in Titusville and the FAA evaluation was completed on November 1, 2006. Mr. Mike Coligny, CEO of Aerosimulators USA praised the professionalism of not only the FAA but HAI as well. "The intelligent application of state of the art technology is the hallmark of Aerosimulators. Its implementation at HAI will result in more knowledgeable pilots with higher skill levels that will continue to support them for their entire aviation career."
