CAE and HAL Helicopter Training Center Takes Delivery of Dhruv Simulator Cockpit


The Helicopter Academy to


Train by Simulation of Flying (HATSOFF), the joint venture owned equally by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and CAE, recently announced that its simulator cockpit for the civil/conventional variant of the Dhruv has arrived at the HAT- SOFF training centre in Bangalore following design and manufacture at CAE's facility in Montreal, Canada.


The Dhruv simulator cockpit will now be installed and inte- grated with the CAE-built full- mission simulator currently in operation at HATSOFF. The simulator features CAE's revolu- tionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit design, which enables cockpits representing various helicopter


types to be used in the simula- tor. The cockpit for the civil/conventional variant of the Dhruv is the second for the HATSOFF training centre, and will be ready-for-training in May 2011. The first cockpit for the simulator represents the Bell 412 helicopter. Training for Bell 412 operators com- menced in July 2010. ◆
