Vertical Mission Training will use a professional simulator training facility to improve training efficiency and flight safety in helicopter pilot training. Based on virtual reality motion simulators, developed by VRM Switzerland, Vertical Mission Training will provide training on the Robinson R22 and Airbus H125 VR devices. This allows Vertical Mission Training to provide the highest standards in helicopter training, from the student pilot to the experienced commercial pilot. In addition, Vertical Mission Training has acquired the option of a VR Airbus H145 twin engine training device.
Advanced pilot training technology
Vertical Mission Training, a helicopter operator based on passion and passion, will establish a helicopter simulator training center in the middle of the Ruhr area, Germany. The Robinson R22 FNPT II will be available to student pilots to learn basic techniques such as attitude flying, traffic pattern work and navigation. “Another benefit of this concept is to train emergency procedures safely and consistently. VRM Switzerland has proven in scientific research that it is possible to learn such skills in a simulator to use them in a helicopter without adaptation. This increases the efficiency of learning by reducing costs, this is even for the environment,” commented Fabi Riesen, CEO of VRM Switzerland.
More realistic emergency training
The center’s “flagship” is the EASA qualified Airbus H125 FTD Level 3. The simulator represents a real helicopter flight experience, certified by Airbus Helicopters factory instructors and test pilots. Thanks to the combination of a 3D virtual reality system, a very powerful motion platform and realistic flight behavior the system has received the seal of quality as an authorized Airbus training device. All of this allows for the performance of a license and a specialist operator test on a flight simulation training device (FSTD). In scenario-based training pilots can improve their skills to improve their safety in flight. Compared to training and testing in a real helicopter, the simulator allows emergency management as they occur. “With VRM Switzerland we have found a technical partner to bring our training to the next level and create an environment for new influences on established concepts,” says Robby Jansch, flight instructor at Heli NRW.
An interesting helicopter for everyone
These realistic and affordable simulators are now making the excitement of helicopter flying more accessible to the public. Everyone who is interested can try flying under the guidance of experienced instructors. Step by step without risk, affordably and without time pressure, as VRM Switzerland’s unique flight assistance enables handing over unique controls to the pilot, as in reality.
“The accessibility of professional simulation technology to student pilots in the early stages of their training is a game changer for the business. We are happy to be among the first adapters,” said Holger Lubbe, founder.
