The new ELITE evolution S623T/S723T helicopter training device has been customized to the specific requirements enabling the simulation of a twin-turbine helicopter based on the Airbus AS355. This advanced training device features a four-channel external visual system and a fully enclosed helicopter cockpit with dual pilot instrument panels and dual controls. The S623T has been built to meet EASA CS-FSTD (H) FNPT II (MCC), Australian CASA category B FSD2 synthetic trainer requirements and has received FAA certification as an AATD for the maximum allowable training credits that can be awarded to a helicopter flight training device.
The flight deck is designed to withstand normal loads, shocks and other conditions incidental to normal operation, transportation and assembly. The structure is sufficiently rigid to assure that there is no discernible movement of the ELITE evolution S623T/S723T helicopter due to personnel movement or control movement within the flight deck.
The areas included in the simulator are from the anti-torque pedals to the aft of the crew member seats. An open Instructor station is external to the flight deck. The interior of the flight deck is designed according to the helicopter specified above and provides exact pilot ergonomics.
