The ELITE Evolution S623 and S623T helicopters are advanced aviation training devices that are the most sophisticated, accurately modeled, and highest fidelity rotary wing trainers available in their class. Detailed design in form, function, and performance from the Eurocopter AS350B single engine turbine and AS355 twin-engine turbine helicopters, the FAA-approved S623 and S623T delivers maximum training benefits at an affordable price. Standard features include a 4-channel enhanced external visual display and a fully-replicated cockpit with dual flight controls and dual instrumentation for single pilot and crew resource training. The S623 and S623T meets requirements for FAA certification, ANAC, JAA, and Australian CASA category B FSD2 synthetic trainer requirements.
All of the components from the fiberglass cockpit, aluminum structure, ergonomically styled interior, flight controls and avionics are professional grade—built to provide years of reliable service under the most stringent and demanding training situations. Instructors can conduct extensive emergency procedure training by controlling the operation of every instruments, every receiver, every system and engine(s). Conduct complete start up to shut down procedures and infuse hot starts, hung starts, inverter failures, loss of tail rotor and tail rotor thrust… just to name a few. Fly in IMC and night environments, visible precipitation, clearly defined ceiling and visibilities, turbulence, and icing. Beyond IFR training, practice VFR procedures as defined in the Practical Test Standards in a visually enhanced scenery environment that encompasses over 22,0000 airports around the world.
