For over 30 years, ELITE customers have been expanding their IFR safety, proficiency, and confidence by using our rotor wing simulators. We’re humbled by the many pilots who express their gratitude for skills learned and honed through using ELITE software. We are motivated by our training mission—helping pilots, and their passengers, to get home safely to their loved ones.
ELITE Simulation Solutions, in cooperation with Daedalus Technologies and Laminar Research introduces the newest addition to their fleet of helicopter training devices. From startup, run up to shut down, TH22 models the form, function and performance of the Robinson R22 piston helicopter.
The fidelity of this helicopter flight training device gives benefits beyond the instrument, commercial, ATP and 7.5 hours VFR flying credits. The accuracy of this trainer allows procedural training for most VFR practical test standards, emergency procedures including brown-out operations and IIMC recoveries. The orientation and size of the visual display gives the correct spatial orientation for hover training, confined area landings, pinnacles, auto rotations and deceleration maneuvers.
Perform all helicopter maneuvers from hover, hover taxi, quick stops, confined areas, pinnacle landings and even autorotations. The TH-50 includes the stunning visual graphics of Prepar3D by Lockheed Martin. Fly in rain, snow, reduced visibility, turbulence, thunderstorms and variety of cloud conditions. Conduct helicopter maneuvers in both day and night settings. Many malfunction capabilities such as loss of tail rotor, loss of tail rotor thrust and instrument partial panel are available as well.
All flight controls including cyclic and collective switches are interfaced to the computer with a single USB cable… simple and effective.
The same single turbine engine rotary wing aerodynamic model used in the ELITE TH-100 Advanced ATD is used based on the Eurocopter AS-350. The ability to start, perform run up and shutdown procedures were removed for the convenience of operation. The TH-50 is fully instrumented and includes a GNS 530 WAAS for GPS and VOR navigation and approaches. The heading bug, OBS and radar altimeter is controlled by physical knobs.
The new Mini Helicopter is a compact, fully-featured single turbine helicopter simulator based on the Airbus AS350B. This system features life-size, high-resolution instruments, lighted-Bendix/King Silver Crown style avionics, Garmin 430 WAAS simulation, instructor station, and external visual system with large-screen display as standard equipment. It utilizes an open and optimized structural construction that is strong and rigid, yet thin enough to fit through a standard door opening for easy transport and integration. The high-fidelity flight model will allow you to perform many complex maneuvers and procedures, everything from the startup to the shutdown checklists. The Mini Helicopter will enable you to unleash valuable rotary-wing training possibilities.
The ELITE MH350 open cockpit helicopter is a single engine turbine trainer based on the performance of the Eurocopter AS350B. It features the same professional feel and quality flight controls and throttle unit as its big brother, the ELITE Evolution S623 cockpit trainer. The difference is that it is single pilot use only and smaller open cockpit design for space constraints. It offers the same center console with aircraft specific switches, optional real Garmin GNS 430W or 530W, pilot instrument panel with mask and adjustments at the instrument and same professional CANBUS style electronics for reliability and maintainability. An upgraded adjustable leather seat if provides unparalleled comfort and ergonomic support.
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.
The new ELITE evolution S623T helicopter training device has been customized to the specific requirements enabling the simulation of a twin-turbine helicopter based on the Airbus AS355. This advanced training device features a four-channel external visual system and a fully enclosed helicopter cockpit with dual pilot instrument panels and dual controls. The S623T has been built to meet Australian CASA category B FSD2 synthetic trainer requirements and has received FAA certification as an AATD for the maximum allowable training credits that can be awarded to a helicopter flight training device.
