(October 13, 2008) -- HeliSim and Eurocopter officially inaugurated the first EC225 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) in Marignane, France, on October 10th. The addition of this new FFS to HeliSim's scope of simulators further enhances Eurocopter's commitment to reinforcing its training capabilities for its customers, with flight safety being a top priority to the company.
Guy Dabadie, CEO of HeliSim, stated, "Our strategy is in tune with Eurocopter's reinforced commitment to improving flight safety by providing simulated alternatives to real flight. We are fully dedicated to enlarging our service offer and ensuring our FFSs are in place at the right price for Eurocopter's customers. Due to the quickly increasing number of EC225s in the oil and gas market, we have installed the first EC225 FFS at our HeliSim facility. It is now fully operational."
