Kronstadt Group developed and delivered Mi-35M helicopter simulator to foreign customer
 
R.E.T. Kronstadt and Technologies for Aviation Companies, parts of Russia’s Kronstadt Group, have developed and manufactured a training simulator of the Mil Mi-35M attack helicopter for flight personnel, the Kronstadt Group press office said on Wednesday. The Mi-35M helicopter training simulator has been developed on order from the Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport, the press office added.

The origine of the foreign customer has not been released, but the Mi-35M is currently operated or has been ordered by a small number of countries: Brazil, Venezuela, Azerbaijan, Iraq and Nigeria.

The FTD training simulator features a modern visualization system but does not have a motion system.

The simulator complex has been accepted by its foreign customer on the Russian territory and dispatched to a foreign army aviation training center.

The training simulator will be assembled and made operational in 2016 after the customer prepares premises to house it.

According to the press office, the customer’s instructors have undergone a full training course to learn to operate the simulator and teach helicopter pilots in future.

The comprehensive training simulator includes special software and equipment, as well as real helicopter control elements and instruments.

The training simulator is similar to the Mi-35M helicopter’s cabin by its size, control elements, appearance, functions and lighting. The simulator’s software has a modular design to change an exercise structure or the helicopter’s organic equipment and the crew’s operating processes while simulating tasks. The simulator’s computer system imitates flight dynamics, the operation of heliborne systems and environment.

The simulator’s baro-aneroid instruments have been converted to electric imitators with the same appearance and functions.

The use of electronic imitators instead of analog instruments and onboard multifunction indicators makes it much easier to operate the simulator and allows repairing and replacing equipment as quickly as possible.

The simulator’s sophisticated architecture allows replacing units, systems and components quickly and its design provides comfortable access to units for their maintenance.

According to R.E.T. Kronstadt CEO Igor Strokin, similar Mi-35M helicopter training simulators are being prepared for shipment to other foreign customers.

Simulators for ground and flying personnel have been developed in close cooperation with the Mil Helicopter-Producing Enterprise, Russian Helicopters rotorcraft maker and Rostvertol helicopter manufacturer.
