The ELITE R44 FNPT II Flight Simulation Training Device is a single or dual pilot, autopilot, original Garmin G500TXi and GTN 750 GPS equipped Flight Simulation Training Device capable of representing almost all aspects of the operational envelope. It is based on the Robinson R44.
This solution includes dual controls which have been built into an accurate replica of the Robinson R44 cockpit. The flight controls, instrument shrouds and pilots seating position emulate the actual aircraft as closely as possible to ensure maximum muscle retention and learning. The flight model for the aircraft has been programmed with the assistance of pilots who have flown the actual aircraft in question. The footprint of this device would be relative to the actual aircraft, cut off just behind the pilot’s seat in the aircraft. The instrument shroud and other panels are relatively accurate replications of those found in the aircraft with the center console containing most of the navigation units that are found in the actual aircraft.
This R44 FNPTII will have the ability to be accredited under EASA CS-FSTD (H) FNPT II, FAA AATD and CASA FSD2 cat B in Australia and it’s primarily useful for training in PPL(H) and CPL(H) and covers all aspects as listed in Annexure I.
The R44 FNPT II Flight Deck contains the following:
The Instructors Workstation or IOS consists of the following hardware; A central touchscreen that has the primary instruments on display and a number of custom-made failures for easy access by the instructor so that at the touch of the screen a specific failure can be activated. Included on this display is a camera display which enables the instructor to monitor the Pilot and Co-Pilot, as well as a pause button which will halt the flight so that specific instruction can be given.
A second touchscreen is located above the touch screen which enables the instructor to control items like the weather, additional failures, wind and also monitor and record the aircrafts flight track.
The system also comes with a printer, Hobbs meter and automatic start-up buttons so that the system can be totally controlled from the Instructors Workstation.
A colour laser printer is included to record and print flights for record purposes.
Curved forward cylindrical visual system utilizing three overhead LCD projectors covering approximately 220° x 45° field of view (actual continuous, unobstructed screen view is approx. 700 x 160 cm). The visual channels are projected from overhead onto a canvas projection surface. The system includes image projectors, image generators and projection screen. The advantage of this projection system is the very large FOV and low ceiling height requirements.
