The Loft Dynamics team is developing the Airbus H125 glass cockpit based on the Garmin G500H TXi and the GTN650Xi avionics. The touch screens are fully functional and the devices represent the original functionality. In addition, it contains a virtual tablet to read checklists and use navigation charts. This enables to train towards the instrument rating including performance based navigation.
Airbus Helicopters and Loft Dynamics are co-developing an Airbus H145 VR training device. The helicopter is a twin-engine multi-purpose rotorcraft tailored for emergency medical services and law enforcement duties, along with aerial work and passenger transport, including private and business aviation as well as offshore operations. It is the latest member of the company’s four-tonne-class twin-engine rotorcraft product range – with designed-in mission capability and flexibility, especially in high and hot operating conditions. The combination of the companies’ expertise will bring a compact, affordable high quality simulator to the market. With the advantages of a virtual reality 360 degree 3D visual system combined with a motion system, H145 operators can profit from the exact replication of their individual H145 D2/ D3 cockpit layout. The OEM simulation package of Airbus Helicopters ensures to have an authentic flight behaviour and correct replication of the system functionality.
Loft Dynamics training devices accurately represent the flight behaviour of the right aircraft. As well the manipulations in the cockpit are intuitively like real. This opens the door for new training concepts: Basic manoeuvres like hovering, attitude flying, entire traffic pattern and autorotations can be trained on the simulator. Thereafter pilots are able to apply the learned without adaptation in the real helicopter. This saves costs, improves training efficiency and enhances flight safety, completely environmentally friendly.
On February 1st, 2023, Loft Dynamics opened the first Virtual Reality Flight Simulation Hub and our first North American headquarters, located at the Santa Monica Municipal Airport (SMO). The hub features the Airbus H125 VR Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD), offering a hands-on way for even more pilots and aviation leaders to experience the future of pilot training and the benefits of VR technology at a critical time for the aviation industry.
Loft Dynamics (formerly VRM Switzerland) wants to say thank you to all visitors at our booth at the Helicopter Association International HAI Heli-Expo 2023. We were thrilled to see the happy faces of those who got to try our VR FSTD and excited about the great discussions we had.
