Loft Dynamics announce partnership with HMotion for H145 VR flight simulators

Loft Dynamics has announced a partnership with HMotion

Loft Dynamics has announced a partnership with HMotion, a joint venture between Airbus Helicopters and ADAC HEMS Academy, through the delivery of two Airbus H145 VR flight simulation training devices (FSTDs), which will be installed at a new simulator center in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.

Loft Dynamics is developing an Airbus H145 VR training device containing the simulator date package of Airbus Helicopters to accurately replicate functions and flight behavior.

As first customer, HMotion acquires the new Loft Dynamics virtual reality simulator, which represents the four-tons-class twin-engine helicopter H145.

The state-of-the-art technology offers features that allow pilots to perform proficiency checks (LPC and OPC) and to receive training credits for the relevant type rating, including normal flight procedures and emergency situations.

Steven Igodt, HMotion CEO says: “I am thrilled to announce HMotion’s groundbreaking collaboration with Loft Dynamics, a pioneer in compact VR training devices,” .

“This partnership signifies a commitment to excellence, as Loft Dynamics’ cutting-edge technology aligns seamlessly with HMotion’s philosophy.

“As we embark on this journey, Loft Dynamics becomes an integral part of our larger vision to establish a state-of-the-art simulator training center for H135 and H145 helicopters in Oberpfaffenhofen.

“This marks the beginning of HMotion’s ambition to become a trendsetter in the world of flight simulation, setting a new standard for innovation and training in the aviation industry.”

Ulrike Hofmann, CFO of HMotion adds: “This agreement does not only represent the beginning of a long-term partnership between HMotion and Loft Dynamics.

“It will also significantly contribute to increased flight safety and sustainability within the helicopter training environment.”

Compared to other technologies, the VR approach with its 3D view and immersive training environment, offers unparalleled quality in reproducing the real world.

The entire system, including a highly dynamic six-degrees-of-freedom motion platform and a full replica cockpit, makes pilots feel as if they are flying a real helicopter.

Fabi Riesen, founder and CEO of Loft Dynamics says: “Realistic simulation is a key factor in achieving the required training benefits.

“I’m pleased that one of the most renowned training academies has selected our cutting-edge technology to provide high-quality crew training, making flight operation even safer”.
