European Rotors 2023: Pilots were excited after their flight in our new Garmin Glass Cockpit Airbus H125 VR Simulator

Loft Dynamics presented its new Airbus H125 Training Device with VR Glass Cockpit for the first time to the public at European Rotors in Madrid. The enthusiasm and feedback from the pilots concerning realism could not have been better.

Realistic and compact

The cockpit with Garmin GTN650 and G500H TXi avionics suite, contains the full functionality of the original Garmin software. The avionics is operated in VR intuitively, just like in reality. All this was presented in the proven Loft Dynamics simulator layout including 6DoF motion system. The exhibition also provided a platform to demonstrate the compactness of the training solution. This allows to set up the simulator directly at bases of helicopter operators to eliminate time-consuming trips to simulator centers and enables spontaneous training sessions if pilots are available on short notice.

This is the most realistic simulator I have ever seen. It’s amazing how immersive the environment is, from the very first second when you put on the VR goggles.

Top-class trade fair for experts

This year’s European Rotors was mainly visited by industry experts. "We have never met such a density of helicopter industry professionals at previous editions of the exhibitions. I am grateful for the enriching specialist discussions we've had and look forward to building fruitful collaborations,” says Nils Werder, Key Account Manager at Loft Dynamics. Sven Tschudi, Loft Dynamics’ VP Sales adds: “The interest in our simulator was higher than ever before. This indicates that our growth strategy and global expansion are on a successful path.”

It's astonishing how realistic the glass cockpit looks, and that the full functionality is provided. It felt just like being in a real helicopter.

Exited pilots and overwhelming feedbacks

Pat Sieber, Sales Executive at Loft Dynamics is pleased about the interest the simulator has generated: “We are overwhelmed by the demand for test flights. We could have easily filled two simulators at this year's show.” Over 70 experienced pilots had the opportunity to discover the realism of the simulator up close. Some of them shared their impression with us:

This simulator offers training possibilities like no other full-flight simulator. In particular, low altitude maneuvers can now be executed realistically, thanks to the outstanding vertical reference.

Make your own opinion

“We invite you as pilot to experience the sensation of the simulator. Feel how the skids lift off, the precision when hovering close to the ground, and the overall realism of operating the helicopter. Operators providing external sling load transports are encouraged to test our sling load training module, designed for practicing sling load operations using mirror and vertical reference techniques. This module is available as an add-on to our Airbus H125 training solution, suitable to train junior pilots up to experienced experts,” Sven Tschudi, VP Sales at Loft Dynamics says.

I hope Loft Dynamics will soon introduce a fire-fighting module to this simulator. This would allow us to train our pilots in a safe and cost-friendly environment.
