Entrol installs its H15 Sn 098 FTD 3 flight simulator to Air Greenland

Entrol has completed the installation of the H15 FTD 3 simulator in the facilities of Air Greenland, the flag carrier of this region which is based in Nuuk.

The H15 FTD 3 simulator is based on the EC 155 model , a twin-engine multipurpose helicopter specially used for rescue tasks. The simulator boasts a comprehensive array of technical features tailored to provide an immersive and effective training experience.
This unit, which will be certified as FTD Level 3, is equipped with vibration simulation and an external mirror, and it sets a new standard for realism and fidelity in flight training.

The visual system of this flight simulator is characterized by its spherical display with a field of view of 200ºx70º, augmented by a robust database. Notably, the simulator includes specialized enhancements such as high-resolution areas with geo-specific terrain and satellite imagery covering 20 km x 20 km, as well as a general area spanning 500 km x 500 km. Additionally, counts on a rich range of 3D objects and areas, including elevated helipads, mountain spurs, water areas, and iconic landmarks, which further enrich the training environment.

A standout feature of the simulator is the inclusion of an external hoist operating station with virtual reality capabilities and motorized cable operation, marking a significant advancement in training technology. This innovative addition enhances training realism and effectiveness, particularly for missions such as search and rescue, offshore operations, and mountain rescue scenarios.

Installation, certification and the start of training activities have already taken place, reaffirming Entrol’s commitment to deliver state-of-the-art training solutions on schedule. Air Greenland, known for its prominent location in the region, will benefit significantly from the enhanced training capabilities offered by the H15 FTD 3 flight simulator.
