Frasca HTD Helicopter Training Device

“You can't practice IIMC in an actual aircraft,” explains Sullivan. “And it's hard to evaluate whether you're proficient or not in an actual aircraft. The simulator makes this possible.”

Seven HTDs Added to Training Fleet

Air Evac added seven Frasca HTDs(Helicopter Training Devices) in 2017. “Each of the HTDs (which are qualified as AATDs) will support about 20 bases and may be used instead of an actual aircraft for a portion of the training time,” says Sullivan. “The devices include a LongRanger cockpit, glass instrument panel and autopilot, but don’t have a motion system.” The AATDs will support Air Evac’s goal of improving pilot decision-making, reducing aircraft accidents and improving safety through high quality training.

Every four months, Air Evac’s 600 pilots will visit an AATD to practice flight in inadvertent instrument meteorological conditions (IIMC) and HAA operating procedures. The two training sessions will allow a pilot to experience a variety of scenarios.
