Safety and qualities have always been our top priorities, so this time we are even prouder to share with you our last accomplishment attained on October 17, 2019 from Coptersafety, the first Flight Simulation Training centre located in Helsinki, Finland.
Hoverfly is the first Italian helicopter operator and Approved Training Organisation (ATO) to obtain FFS (Full Flight Simulator) Level D Certification on AS350B3/H125, which represents a high technical level of flight simulator recreating all aircraft systems that are accessible from the flight deck and are critical to training.
Coptersafety is aimed at improving helicopter pilots’ safety performance through reliable, flexible and efficient mission-specific simulator training, enhancing safety by letting pilots practice any scenarios in any environment until standard operational procedures become second nature to them. The renowned institution has awarded two of our flight instructors with this Primary Certification after having them trained on a specific simulator able to offer immersive and realistic training thanks to features such as cockpit vibration, smoke generation, 3D clouds and night scenes. Consequently, should a situation emerge in real life, they will be well prepared and ready to act without hesitation.
It goes without saying that this adds a key element to Hoverfly’s commitment to improve the safety of its helicopter operations in order to make its pilots feel confident and motivated to accomplish their missions even in the most challenging situation and provide its clients with the highest possible safety and quality standards.
