FRASCA Helicopter Training Device (HTD) on Display at AMTC

Frasca Delivered The Bell 206L4 Level 7 FTD And Another 7 AATD s



Frasca International, September 24, 2017 - Urbana, IL - Frasca International will display their New Bell 206 HTD (Helicopter Training Device) at the 2017 Air Medical Transportation Conference (AMTC), October 16-18 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The new helicopter device is an ideal product designed for helicopter air ambulance providers, airborne law enforcement, introductory turbine transition training, and ab-initio flight schools.

Frasca, a flight simulator manufacturer well known for their high fidelity flight training devices (FTDs) and full flight simulators (FFSs), developed the HTD in response to customer demand for a helicopter training device that had a lower price point but still delivered the features required to meet their training objectives.

The Frasca HTD comes standard with one aircraft configuration kit (B206, B407, R44, AS350, MD500), Garmin G500H or analog instrument panel, Garmin GTN 650, Collective grip based on aircraft configuration kit (governed or ungoverned piston, modulated, or FADEC), annunciator Panel and Circuit Breakers required in RFM procedures, Frasca’s Helicopter Mission Training Database, Single Channel Visual System, Frasca's Simplicity™ Touch-Screen Instructor Station (IOS) and will be AATD qualified.

Additional aircraft kits can be purchased to add training value, and optional features include:

- Garmin GTN750
- Simulated HeliSAS
- 3 channel visual display system
- Trailer for mobility or self-contained facility
- Custom Databases

Frasca designed the HTD for IIMC - inadvertant IMC encounters as well as operational and procedural training. The HTD was engineered using aerodynamic technology filtered down from the FFSs and FTDs Frasca is known for, with the goal of providing training value with a no-nonsense approach.

The launch customer for the Frasca HTD is Air Evac Lifeteam, who contracted with Frasca for seven B206 AATDs earlier this year. Six of the devices will be housed in trailers for the option of mobile training.
