Training simulators keep pilots safe

February 23, 2012, 10:42 am

Metro Aviation is working with American Eurocopter to incorporate the AS350 Flight Simulator as part of the operator's training program. The AS350 simulator will allow Metro Aviation to put pilot students in an actual aircraft model they can fly and practice emergency procedures to prepare them for actual flight.

American Eurocopter has also developed a new course that puts pilots through training, practicing system failures, and reenacting emergency scenarios to illustrate the safety features and protocol that must be used to keep pilots and passengers safe, Rotor Pad reported. Pilot insurance is another tool that can keep pilots safe in the skies.

Further, students in the Marshall University Computer and Information Technology program are working with the U.S. Army to develop new flight simulators the military could use in the future to more efficiently train pilots, West Virginia Public Broadcasting reported.

Computer and information technology professor Brian Morgan told the source that working with the military could help attract more students to the aviation industry, as well as test students to invent a more improved flight simulator.
