null A new full flight simulator for the H160: Ready to go for the next chapter
The H160 full flight simulator (FFS) is now ready to go, and is setting a new learning path for trainees who will start operations with this new helicopter in the near future.
EASA granted the level D qualification for the FFS in August 2020, making it available before the aircraft’s entry-into-service. The project’s success was thanks to the close cooperation between teams at Airbus Helicopters, Thales and Helisim.
The construction of the FFS started in parallel with the aircraft’s development, a decision that bore fruit thanks to the teams’ work to incorporate a number of the aircraft parameters in tandem with their development, resulting in a simulator which behaves as closely as possible to the aircraft itself. The level D qualification is therefore a validation of the programme’s efforts.
