Surf Life Saving Queensland has purchased the first Entrol H14 FTD level 5 simulator in Australia.
Entrol will install the device, based on the Bell 429, by mid-2023 in Surf Life Saving Queensland’s base in Archerfield Airport, on the eastern coast of Australia.
This simulator will be equipped with real GTN 750 and GTN 650 units, Entrol’s cylindrical visual system with a 200-degree x 40-degree field of view, Entrol’s high-end vibration system to replicate in-flight scenarios and a forward-looking infrared camera based on FLIR.
“We are proud of the trust Surf Life Saving Queensland has deposited in us. Installing our first simulator in the continent will be a great achievement for us; we are happy to have reached our goal with Surf Life Saving Queensland,” states Nacho Navacerrada, head of sales at Entrol.
“Some of the benefits to Surf Life Saving Queensland pilots utilizing the Entrol FTD device based on the Bell 429 include improved safety and emergency procedure training, cost efficiencies, variable scenario selections and the ability to integrate and train with other aircrew procedures and activities”, said Ken Clark OAM, Surf Life Saving Queensland’s general manager, aviation.
With the installation of this device, Entrol will have a presence on five continents, achieving an important milestone for the company.
