Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Uses ELITE Helicopter Simulator to Reduce Training Costs


ELITE Simulation Solutions, May 26, 2017 - ORLANDO, Fl — The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office recently purchased an ELITE TH-100 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) from ELITE Simulation Solutions in Oviedo, Florida.

This single-seat AATD is FAA certified and replicates their current fleet of Airbus AStar Helicopters with a 3-screen enhanced visual system. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit will be utilizing ELITE’s AATD for re-currency emergency training, Inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IIMC) Emergency Procedures Training, and Flight Officer Pinch Hitter Training (in case of pilot incapacitation).

“The AATD has cut our training budget in the actual helicopter by 75%; thus, allowing those flight hours to be directed towards crime fighting,” says Stan Pruitt, Section Flight Instructor for the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. Stan adds that while “the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit received quotes from several leading simulator manufacturers, ELITE Simulation Solutions came through with the most economical one, and showed to have great customer service and technical support for a long term partnership.

Since purchasing the AATD, the partnership has remained strong and ELITE Simulation Solutions has provided first class customer and technical support. We can always count on a prompt reply when we contact them, but luckily due to their quality product, the AATD has required very little maintenance since our purchase. We believe ELITE’s AATD is making our Aviation Unit safer and look forward to working with them for many more years to come.”

About ELITE Simulation Solutions: For nearly 30 years, ELITE has been a pioneer and leading global provider of IFR training software, simulator hardware and aviation training devices.
