New Sims Approved For R-22/44

Merlin Simulation Receives AATD Approval For Pro Series Helicopter FTD

Merlin Simulation has received approval of its affordable, new generation Pro-Series R-22/44 AATD (Advanced Aviation Training Device ), the company announced Friday. The FTD may be housed in a trailer or a dedicated room within the training facility.

New Generation means new features incorporating advanced technology, superior visual imagery, and true flight modeling previously found only in high end training devices.

A distortion free visual of near 180° field of view is the largest in the industry for this class of product. Coupled to an aeromodel developed through a rigorous flight test program "the device is not only an accurate representation of the flight characteristics of an R-22/44, but a pleasure to fly. Given the quick responsiveness and steep learning curve of helicopter training, the new R-22 AATD finally provides the necessary feel, look, and flight characteristics of the actual 300C for serious training," reported Ken Zimmerman, President of Merlin Simulation.
Other advanced features include:

  • High Fidelity graphics
  • World visual and navigation databases
  • High Fidelity Cockpit
  • High Fidelity Systems replication,  including engine start up and shut down
  • A new easy to use instructor station with record/playback
  • A high fidelity replication of aircraft systems failures
  • Proper engine start up & shutdown
  • Simulated Garmin 530 GPS/Nav/Comm unit (moving map)
  • Unique instructor and testing tools


R22, R44 Helicopters

The reconfigurable Pro-Series also includes the S300 introduced at HeliExpo 2009 that may be upgraded to include the Schweizer S333. Other models are available upon request.
