Augusta Westland AW139 AATD

  • The offered ELITE AW139 Advanced Aviation Training Device is a generic depiction modelled closely after the Leonardo AW139 helicopter model, with all basic functionalities covered.


  • Most Flight Deck controls, panels, knobs, switches and other components found in the actual aircraft are replicated in size, look, feel and functionality in the Training Device. In addition to aircraft hardware, the aircraft systems and avionics are simulated in great detail to ensure the ability to represent and train all phases of flight under normal, abnormal, and emergency conditions.


  • In addition, ground operations training can be executed by utilizing the highly accurate 3D airport or missing scenario add-on sceneries. By adding this option, the actual airport being replicated is closely matched, so that actual airport diagrams can be used in training. Pilots will find runways, taxiways, buildings, jet-ways, pads, hangars, etc. correctly placed. Runway and taxiway signs, as well as airport markings, are also detailed and accurate. Rehearsal and familiarization training of a specific airport is possible by adding either of these options, hereby greatly increasing the transfer of learning to the real world.


  • Installed in front of the device is either a large single channel projection screen or alternatively a three-channel curved projection screen which displays the synthetic world. Additional visual portrayal options are available. The result is a highly accurate Flight Deck and visual system which provides an immersive training environment and puts pilots in an incredibly realistic simulated environment where they can learn aircraft flying skills that are, in some cases, impossible to train using actual aircraft.

Features of the ELITE AW139 Helicopter:

  • The AW139 option consists of the following;

    • Realistic Dual control cyclic, anti-torque pedals and collective.
    • Realistic Primus Epic PFD and MFD replica instrumentation.
    • AW139 aircraft specific switches.
    • 4 Axis autopilot.
    • State of the art integrated Force Trim Release on the cyclic system.
    • Replica Overhead Panel.
    • Onboard camera and custom IOS.
    • 3m DOME scenery system providing 180° out of cockpit visuals.
    • Flight Management System.
    • Extensive list of emergency procedures and malfunctions
    • Worldwide Visual Scenery with generic 3D Objects.
    • Updatable Local Area Navigational Data

The ELITE AW139 comes complete with a large number of simulated emergencies that can be performed in its simulator. the flight software program has a number of generic failures that can be switched on and off and elite has programmed a number of additional unique failures. these failures can all be controlled from the ios which is situated at the back of the simulation device.
as in the actual aircraft, the failures and malfunctions are divided up into the following main sections and are either present as a standard in the commercial software purchased or have been developed by elite specifically for the AW139 unit:

• Generic Failures

• Flight Control System
• Avionics System.
• Electrical Systems
• Engine Systems
• Fuel System
• Hydraulics Systems
• Instrument Failures
• Rotor And Transmission Failures

Generic Failures And Emergencies

The flight simulation program has a number of detailed failures that can be used in the simulator, these failures can be turned on via the ios and are able to be activated on either a random, timed or immediate basis. The consequences and aircraft behavior of these pre-programmed failures come with fairly accurate changes to the flight dynamics of the aircraft.
