  2. 2. The benefits of using a helicopter simulator There is no doubt that aviation training using simulators offers a cost effective and safe alternative to training during actual flight. The real cost of helicopter training consists of many variables but includes the hourly costs associated with fuel, maintenance and insurance. Training in simulators provides a low cost virtually risk-free alternative allowing pilots to be trained for emergencies and other dangerous real world experiences. Safety Pilot flying skills Historically a  large number  of serious accidents have occurred  when training in helicopters. Pilots and crew members have died or become seriously injured and expensive equipment has been damaged, often beyond repair. Training in a simulator is totally safe even when practicing the most severe malfunctions under adverse weather conditions. Simulation based training allows for the training of maneuvers or situations that may be impractical (or even dangerous) to perform in the helicopter, while keeping the pilot and instructor in a relatively low-risk environment on the ground. For example, electrical system failures, instrument failures, hydraulic system failures, engine fires and even flight control failures can be simulated without risk to the pilots or helicopter. Flight control malfunctions such as loss of control of the tail rotor, stuck pedals and malfunctions leading to a  full down autorotation can be trained. Many of these malfunctions are not possible to practice in the helicopter or are considered unsafe to practice. Instructors can also provide students with a higher concentration of training tasks in a given period of time than is usually possible in the helicopter. For example, conducting multiple instrument approaches in the actual helicopter may require significant time spent flying the helicopter to a position where the exercise can begin, while in a simulation, as soon as one approach has been completed, the instructor can immediately re -position the simulated helicopter to an ideal (or less than ideal) location from which to begin the next approach. Cost effectiveness Standardisation Flight simulation provides a significant economic advantage over training in an actual helicopter. Once fuel, maintenance, and insurance costs are taken into account, the costs of using a flight simulator are usually substantially lower than the operating costs of flying the helicopter for training purposes.   It is important for helicopter operators to ensure that all crews are trained to the same uniform standard when confronted by changing weather and operational conditions. To ensure training is conducted for all crews under the same conditions the simulator environment can be controlled for many variable conditions including wind, visibility, daytime / night time, cloud ceiling, thunderstorms and outside air temperature. This ensures that all pilots will be trained and assessed under the same conditions.  Regulations JAR-OPS 3.965 and Appendix 1 effectively require training to be conducted in a simulator if available.
  3. 3. Helicopter training at OAA Oxford Aviation Academy provides training for both civilian and military customers for VFR, IFR, HEMS, SAR, offshore, military operations, NVG, CRM and more in our Bell/AB 212/412 Full Flight Simulator. Bell/AB 212/412 Full Flight Simulator The simulator is based in Stockholm, Sweden at Arlanda Airport. It is designed to meet both military and civilian training requirements for flying skills and mission training, such as search and rescue, emergency and medical services, sling load operations and military tactical training. This includes provisions to train the use of special equipment, such as weather radar, forward looking infrared and night vision goggles. Experienced Instructors In addition to the simulator, our helicopter instructors play a vital role in maintaining top quality, reality-based and realistic training. Most of them are working pilots and have extensive experience in civilian and military operations and training. Advanced Training We offer Pilot and Technical Recurrent training, CRM and NVG training, Simulator Operator’s course and Pilot Type training on the Bell/AB 212/412. Additional courses can be designed together with the customer to address any training need. Close proximity to the airport The Stockholm training facility is located at StockholmArlanda Airport, only a few minutes from the airport terminals. There are free shuttle buses leaving every 15 minutes in both directions. At Nightstop, our well equipped hotel directly opposite the academy, you will find accommodation at competitive prices.
  4. 4. Testimonial Introduction to Oxford Aviation Academy “We are very pleased with the quality of the Agusta Bell 212/412 helicopter simulator in Stockholm. The simulator presents our crews with complex training challenges that would be too time consuming and costly to perform in a helicopter”. Inaer Helicopter Italia S.p.A. Alessandro Falsina, Post Holder Crew Training OAA is the world’s leading independent provider of aviation training, personell solutions and technical support services with more than 50 flight simulators and cabin mock-ups.
