Simulators

Our unique Full Flight Simulators are developed and manufactured by Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH.

Reiser’s FFS cockpits are full-scale replica of the original helicopter, built to the respective certification requirements. Motion systems generate realistic training conditions for the crews. A high resolution visual system displays the environment during daylight, night and NVIS conditions, paired with various weather effects and animations. The sound system resembles the helicopter  sound at high fidelity. All the hardware is brought to life by a state-of-the-art software package. This includes a flight model to reproduce the helicopter’s flight dynamics, worldwide models from atmosphere to terrain and the helicopter functionality.

For mission training, the additional crew member stations are supported by 3D Virtual Reality (VR) goggles which simulate the outside view through the side/rear doors. Crew members can thus perform their tasks e.g. winch operations, external cargo, FLIR operations, etc. The FFS allows the instructor to create more complex compound malfunctions scenarios that closely mirror the progression of realworld emergencies. The visual system, resolution and graphic fidelity give profound visual reference to provide unprecedented immersion. The Instructor Operator Station (IOS) Software consits of a software suite running on a conventional computer. Intuitive structure and touch technology make it easy for the instructor to set up specific scenarios for training. The  monitors display the IOS graphical user interface, sections of the cockpit displays, virtual images of the helicopter …and the surrounding environment (stealth view) or images from any of the observation cameras (e.g. installed in the cockpit). Cameras can of course be switched off, if desired. The cockpit view allows the instructor to observe the student’s actions.

The Instructor Operator Station (IOS) is located in the aft cabin behind the cockpit and allows observation of the cockpit and the instrument panel. It provides seating for one instructor, one observer and a guest on a jump seat. All seats are equipped with safety harnesses. For training with night vision goggles, the IOS is completely isolated from the cockpit, so that no lights can  disturb the NVG operation. The IOS consists of two vertically aligned touch screen monitors with full-HD resolution.

On top the new Reiser simulator will play its real network capability: Thus, both of the simulators in Germany and in Stavanger can be digitally interconnected in a common virtual world. This is made possible by the innovative software architecture that REISER uses in its platforms right from the start.

Based on the Linux open source operating system, the virtual world in which the pilot will later fly his missions are separated from the cockpit instruments with their complicated computing  processes. A third computer controls the interaction between the cockpit and the scenery. As an advantage, only a small amount of data between the simulators must be replaced during networked operation. Since all software programs are directly linked to the approval, there will be no further updates after certification, unless the simulated type of helicopter evolves naturally.

Reiser’s FFS is supplemented by an Avionic Desktop Trainer (ADT) using touch screens to replicate the avionics and aircraft systems to assist in learning procedures.

With more than 350 Helionix® systems currently delivered worldwide, the training needs can be calculated and the result says: The effort is worthwhile.
