Ryan Aerospace and Precision Flight Controls are pleased to launch the HELIMOD Mark III, an innovative and affordable new type of helicopter simulator targeted at teaching pilots the art of vertical reference and managing external sling loads. A demonstrator recently used at Heli-Expo in Las Vegas was very well-received by long line pilots – many citing that they wished there was such a product when they were learning how to long line.
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Full immersion in the cockpit with the ability to look around (including directly down for vertical reference / long lining operations)
- Modular and reconfigurable (aircraft-specific modules and controls can easily be added/interchanged) including main instrument panels, avionics suites, GPS etc.
- USB “Plug and Play”. Can be used with a variety of software platforms dependent on the training requirement
- Cyclic has force trim function
- Pedals have a high-quality hydraulic dampening
- Collective has high-quality hydraulic dampening and friction control
- Robust and deployable. The mainframe has durable Rhino Coating with recessed, rugged handles for easy movement. Internal parts over-engineered to withstand the harshest of operating environments
- Retractable wheel system for easy movement available as an option
- Small footprint. Can fit in a small office, trailer or shipping container and is entirely portable
- Package deals with PC, configured software and virtual reality headset available
- Motion platform available
- Adjustable seat
- Can also be used with LCD screens or projectors for the out-the-window visuals instead of / as well as the virtual reality headset
- Cost-effective / affordable
- Excellent backup and support
- Shipping worldwide
The HELIMOD Mark III has attachment points on the base of the unit for easy integration with motion platforms such as the D-Box system shown in the image below. The three actuators provide important pitch, roll, heave and vibration cues. This is particularly important when used with Virtual Reality to form congruency between what the pilot sees and his or her vestibular system, thus reducing the likelihood of dizziness or disorientation. There is also provision for the integration of a Buttkicker low-frequency sound system for additional vibration and sound cues.
