Thales Reality H simulator at Eurocopter South-East Asia receives dual certification

  • Thales has obtained dual FTD 3 and FFS B certification from the French civil aviation authority DGAC for its new-generation simulator at Eurocopter's South-East Asia training centre in Singapore

Thales announces that its Reality H helicopter simulator at Eurocopter’s training centre in South-East Asia has obtained FTD level 3 and FFS level B certification from the French civil aviation authority DGAC. Based in Singapore, this simulator serves the training needs of Eurocopter’s civil and military customers in the region.

This certification to European JAR/EASA standards makes the new-generation system suitable for type-rating training on the Dauphin N3 helicopter and proficiency training for yearly revalidation of pilot’s licences. The simulator can be used in place of a real helicopter for annual operator proficiency checks. It can also be incorporated into ab-initio training for a commercial helicopter pilot’s licence (CPL H) or air transport pilot’s licence (ATPL H), including instrument rating (IR) and associated proficiency checks. Given its ability to realistically replicate flight conditions, the simulator can also be used to conduct line checks and allows pilots to train to fly with night-vision goggles.

Built under a cooperation agreement signed with Eurocopter in 2009, the Dauphin N3/N3+ simulator incorporates the latest technological advances of Thales’s new Reality H product, which was specifically designed to meet the needs of helicopter operators, maximising training capacity and availability while offering greater ease of installation, operation and maintenance.

Thales has delivered more than 110 helicopter simulators to customers in 25 countries around the world.
