New training functionalities for armasuisse helicopter pilots

Nov 28. 2017  Thales has delivered upgrades to the Full Flight and Mission Simulators (FFMS) AS532 Super-Puma (TH06) transport helicopters and multi-purpose twin-engined EC635 military helicopter of the Swiss Air Force.

The standardization of the Full Flight and Mission Simulator AS532 Super-Puma included avionics system, radiocommunications, digital map, forward-looking infrared imagery and helmet visualization upgrades. On the EC635 helicopter simulator, upgrades mainly concerned enhancements to the Instructor Operating Station (IOS).

Thales flight simulators have been used by the Swiss Air Force since 2012. They perfectly match the Force's specific training requirements of the pilots. Thanks to the ability to connect together, they offer more opportunities of training exercises including tactical operations such as search and rescue.
We are very satisfied with the upgrades and new functionalities brought by Thales to our full flight simulators. These upgrades are necessary to bring the simulators up to current standards, especially for the AS532 Super-Puma. Our pilots can now train in a virtual environment that matches the real helicopter they are currently flying.
