Helisim has celebrated the 100,000th hour milestone for flight simulator sessions with international customers, marking a key milestone in its training of pilots on Eurocopter helicopters that directly contributes to the safety of operators worldwide.
Helisim operates two full-flight simulators with motion systems that accommodate roll-on/roll-off Level D cockpits for the following rotorcraft: the EC225, EC155, AS332 L1 and AS332 Super Puma/Cougar, along with the AS365 N2 Dauphin/Panther. It also has a full-flight simulator for the NH-90 TTH tactical transport helicopter, along with one multi-cockpit Level 3 flight training device.

Helisim training includes courses for helicopter type ratings, instrument ratings, maintenance flight checks, glass cockpit familiarization, line-oriented flight training, multi-crew coordination and cockpit resource management, along with the qualification of simulator training operators.
