Airbus Helicopters and VRM Switzerland agreed to co-develop a Virtual Reality (VR) training device for the twin-engine H145 helicopter.

This new training tool will offer H145 operators a compact training solution with realistic flight behavior and full-body immersion, as well as the 3D vision and high-resolution scenery of VR technology.

VRM Switzerland and Airbus Helicopters established their collaboration in 2021 to bring the EASA-qualified H125 VR training device to the market, enabling pilots to train realistically and execute complete proficiency checks on the simulator.

“With this type of simulator, the pilot can enter operational scenarios that would be very risky to attempt in actual flight but which bring significant added value to training,” says Christoph Zammert, Executive Vice President of Customer Support & Services at Airbus Helicopters.

Containing the OEM data package, the H145 VR simulator once qualified will allow pilots to perform proficiency checks and receive training credits. It will be used to perform type ratings including normal flight, emergency situations, hoist operations and flight with night vision goggles, as well as instrument ratings.
