Helisim inaugurates its first NH90 Simulator
Today, Helisim inaugurated its first NH90 flight simulator at the training center in Marignane (South of France) where it will be used to train military helicopter pilots.
Helisim's NH90 Full Flight simulator (manufactured by Thales), is equipped with the very latest generation database,of visual images, capable of simulating all types of environments (be it desertic, mountainous or maritime), weather conditions, special effects and battlefield threats via the use of “computer generated forces” (CGF).
Realism was a key objective in the design process, enabling the simulator to produce special effects of unrivaled quality for training sequences. Satellite images with resolution down to 12.5 cm in urban areas were included in the database to achieve the desired effects.
The NH90 cabin is also fully compatible with the use of third-generation night vision goggles, or with special helmets fitted with head-up displays (HUD) that are projected directly onto the visor, essential for night flight training.
Helisim is a company jointly created by Eurocopter, Thales and DCI. The Australian Army Aviation, the French Navy and the French Army Air Corps (ALAT) will be the first customers to send their pilots to the Helisim facility for NH90 training.
