Located in Marignane, the Airbus Helicopters Training Academy in France has honed the skills of more than 14,000 pilots and technicians over the past 10 years – confirming its position as a reference in helicopter training. The centre fulfils local regulations as well as demanding international standards to work hand-in-hand with customers in the safest conditions.
The Training Academy’s mission is to offer customers services that are best suited to their specific needs, allowing them to perform missions safely and efficiently.
The Marignane facility includes a 2,200-square-metre building that houses the maintenance hangar – allowing more than 2,000 technicians per year to get hands-on practice on full-scale mock-ups. The facility continuously introduces and improves computer-based training tools, and strives to integrate powerful and cost-effective solutions to traditional teaching methods.
The cutting-edge Helionix trainer plays a central role in enabling key capabilities for all Helionix aircraft for both pilots and technicians. Together with Helisim, pilots gain the confidence and expertise needed to safely pilot.
In addition to ground instruction and simulators, flight training averages around 2,000 flight hours per year.
