China Flying Dragon General Aviation Co ordered two Frasca Flight Training Devices (FTDs) simulators convertible between the Schweizer S300 and the Robinson R44 helicopters


FRASCA R44/S300 Simulators for China


Frasca International, April 08, 2016 - Urbana, IL. FRASCA International, Inc. has received an order for two Helicopter Flight Training Devices (FTDs) for China Flying Dragon General Aviation Co. Ltd, located in the Heilongjiang Province, China.

The two S300/R44 FTDs will be convertible between the Schweizer S300 and the Robinson R44.

The FRASCA S300/R44 FTD is a high fidelity, dual certified, simulator for the Schweizer S300 and Robinson R44 helicopter. The simulator cockpit accurately replicates the aircraft, including panels, controls and instrumentation. The simulator can easily be converted between the S300 configuration and R44 configuration. FRASCA certified FTDs allow safe and efficient training performed in the simulator instead of the aircraft. Additional features include FRASCA’s TruVision™ system providing highly realistic visual training environments.

Frasca's light helicopter FTDs have become popular simulators in the worldwide helicopter training market. In addition to these two simulators for China Flying Dragon, Frasca recently delivered a S300/R44 FTD to Xin Lin Feng Teng GA Corporation in Guanghan, China and a R44 FTD to Sky Safari in Shanghai, China. Additionally, Frasca has received an order for a R44 FTD to Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Oregon U.S.A.
