Frasca to Provide Bell 407 FNPT II to Horizon Flight Academy
Horizon International Flight Academy LLC of the United Arab Emirates has placed an order with FRASCA International, Inc. of Urbana, Ill. for a Bell 407 Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer (FNPT) II (“simulator”). The simulator will be configured as a Bell 407 Helicopter and will feature Dual G500, Dual G430, FRASCA’s TruVision™ visual system with 6-channel (200 x 68 degrees) projected display system, and a custom database that features Abu Dhabi's Al Ain International Airport.
The simulator will perform in a multi-role capacity. During the general handling and emergency procedure phase, instructors will be able to demonstrate every task from pre-start/start to flight maneuvering and shutdown. Along with this, it will also allow demonstration of emergencies and their corresponding procedures for a safe recovery of the aircraft. During the instrument phase it will allow for a comprehensive, realistic IMC/IFR learning environment. The true value of the simulator in all roles is the ability to “freeze” the scenario for on-the-spot correction and feedback.
