Frasca International will exhibit a
Eurocopter EC-135 Level 6 Flight Training Device (FTD) at the 2008
Heli-Expo, which will run February 24-26 in Houston, TX.
The FTD will be on display in the Frasca booth (#3749) and will
feature Frasca's TruVision Global visual system in a 200 degree
display dome. The unit was built for Era Training and will be
delivered to their new Training Center in Lake Charles, LA
following the show.
The Era Training Center will feature two Frasca helicopter
Flight Training Devices (FTDs), an AS-350B2 FTD and the EC-135 FTD,
classrooms, custom briefing areas and administrative offices.
"The helicopter training sector has become a very important
market for Frasca," said John Frasca, Vice President of Frasca
International, Inc. "As the demand for helicopter training grows
our experience in rotary wing simulation enables us to deliver the
best helicopter devices available."
Frasca has built helicopter devices for Bell Helicopter, Bristow
Helicopters, SilverState Helicopters, PHI, Air Logistics and
numerous other organizations worldwide. Although Frasca
manufactures flight training devices for all aircraft types, a
growing percentage of their total sales volume is in helicopter
