Bell 206 Helicopter Simulator launched by Precision Flight Controls
Precision Flight Controls (PFC) based in Rancho Cordova, California, in partnership with Ryan Aerospace of Australia to present Bell 206 simulator at Heli-Expo
Precision Flight Controls, March 03, 2017 - Rancho Cordova, CA - Precision Flight Controls, (PFC) based in Rancho Cordova, California, in partnership with Ryan Aerospace of Australia, recently introduced their helicopter simulator.
The company will showcase the product at Heli-Expo in Dallas, TX March 6-9, 2017, Booth #3.
The simulator is based on the Bell 206 and includes a complete avionics suite consisting of a fully functional G530 WAAS GPS with a second NAV/COM radio, ADF and transponder. The main instrument panel, overhead and center console features full fidelity for normal and emergency operations. The external visual system consists of five, 4K 70-inch LED monitors or other optional systems. The included Instructor Operating Station allows the instructor to effectively and efficiently load a multitude of weather combinations and equipment failures for various training scenarios. Its modular design also allows the operator the ability to change the instrument panel to a Bell 407 configuration with glass cockpit displays. The simulator is positioned on a 3-DOF D-Box motion platform which brings additional realism and a refined level of motion cueing. The combined features provide an optimized level of training for normal and abnormal procedures, ground operations and in-flight training scenarios all at a very cost effective point. The simulator is being submitted to the FAA for AATD approval and PFC will also be seeking FTD Level 7 approval this year, mid-2017.
