Cicaré Helicopter Displays SVH-4 Single-Seat Training Device At HAI…
Cicaré Helicopters displayed the SVH4 single-seat simulator training device at HAI 2017 in Dallas this year.
Mike Creed, CEO, DEA General Aviation (USA/China) for Cicaré Helicopters, told Aero-News CEO and editor in chief Jim Campbell that the SVH-4 can be used by student pilots for up to 10 hours credit towards their FAA Private Pilot certificate.
Creed said that the ground-based SVH-4 can revolutionize helicopter training, and DEA General Aviation has purchased 48 of the devices for use in the U.S. market. He said that the primary market is for training pilots in the experimental helicopter market, which is the fastest-growing segment in the world of helicopters.
Also on display in the Cicaré booth at Heli-Expo 2017 was the Cicaré 7T, a tandem seat version of the single-seat 7B aircraft.
In the works, Cicaré is developing the Cicaré 8, a two-seat trainer, which has been ultralight certified in a number of countries in Europe. It is currently going through certification testing in Germany.
Creed also mentions the Cicaré 12 which will be the new Part 27 fully certified aircraft. A prototype of that aircraft is currently flying, and is estimated to be about a year from certification by the FAA.
