Argentina certifies simulators at Helicopter Flight Training Center

The Administración Nacional de Aviación Civil (ANAC) Argentina has certified three simulators at the Helicopter Flight Training Center (HFTC) in Shreveport, Louisiana. Two inspectors recently spent time at the HFTC and certified the EC135 Level D full motion simulator, AS350 Level 7 flight training device and BH407 Level 7 flight training device for Argentinian pilots.

The inspectors were required to review the training center’s paperwork and fly each simulator for a minimum of two hours to grant the certification. They will return in the fall to certify the EC145 Level D full motion simulator and the BH407GX Level 7 flight training device, which recently earned the FAA certification.

“We are excited to host even more international customers due to our new certification,” said Metro Aviation President Mike Stanberry. “Our training center is equipped with simulators for some of the most popular airframes in the industry and we want to offer them to customers worldwide.”

The HFTC has hosted several international customers since opening in 2012. For more information on training opportunities, visit metroaviation.com.
