Airbus Helicopters is constantly developing the network of simulator centres that supports its range of civil and military rotorcraft – providing advanced training solutions that combine the benefits of actual flight and the safety of simulation tools.

Many of our training academies around the world are equipped with state-of-the art Full-Flight Simulators (FFS) or Flight Training Devices (FTD) to ensure the most realistic mission environment without compromising the safety of participants and without using aircraft dedicated to commercial or military missions.

Currently, 24 FFS and FTD are positioned in our training academies and are used by our network. Airbus Helicopters annually delivers more than 30,000 training hours in type rating, mission-related, recurrent, or more specific courses. Its facilities benefit from the highest standards and are fully compliant with the latest certifications.

Simulator training courses


Recurrent Emergency Courses

These courses provide the pilot with the knowledge and proficiency required to perform emergency procedures. Upon completion, pilots will be able to land safely despite a failure scenario.

Mission Training

Based on realistic mission scenarios, these courses provide the pilot with basic skills applied to an operational environment – such as search and rescue, mountain flight, night vision or EMS.

Specific Courses

Simulators can be partially or entirely used to complete such specific courses as performance-based navigation, multi-crew cooperation or synthetic flight instruction.
