ADAC HEMS: Training with Real-World Experience
Full flight simulation for smaller helicopter types (the Eurocopter EC135 and EC145, for example) mainly used in HEMS and law enforcement may still be a novelty, but demand is growing by the day. Only a few simulation centers worldwide offer this service. ADAC HEMS Academy (Stand M80) operates the world’s only EC145 FFS and offers mission and safety procedure training on both EC135 & EC145 devices. Training procedures demonstrate proficiency by integrating cognitive and motor skills in operationally realistic scenarios; training that reflects the dynamically changing environment of a pilot.
As major operator in the European HEMS market with a fleet of over 50 helicopters (EC135, EC145 and BK117), ADAC is not just a simulator operator. “Everything we do is driven by hands-on experience.”
