Helitrans to operate VRM Switzerland’s first qualified H125 Virtual Reality Flight Training Device EASA Level 3

Posted by Admin

“For VRM Switzerland it is a milestone to open the door for flight schools and operators to train and execute checks on a VR FTD3. Because our technology provides the pilot with the important 3D visual references and the feel of the helicopter. On top of the required FTD3 standard, our system is based on an electrically driven high dynamic motion system which enables the pilot even to feel where the skids are touching the ground. Normal and emergency procedures can be trained realistically and without risk, even such which cannot be trained in the real helicopter.” says Fabi Riesen, CEO of VRM Switzerland.

Vita Inclinata CEO Accomplishes Mission: Hand Delivers American-Made Search & Rescue Tech To Ukraine Fighters In Active War Zone

Posted by Admin

BROOMFIELD, CO, and WASHINGTON, DC,  — Vita Inclinata today announced CEO Caleb Carr’s successful mission to hand-deliver his company’s donated Vita Rescue System (VRS) for helicopter rescue load stabilization into the active Ukrainian war zone. On April 13, 2022—with support of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Emergency Service—a Russian Mil Mi-8 twin-turbine helicopter was provided to conduct VRS medevac training in Uzhgorod. As a result, Ukrainian Special Aviation Unit crews can now airlift wounded civilians and warfighters using a helicopter hoist in two minutes versus the typical 20-minute process, a capability the Ukrainians have not been trained in before. Due to this engagement, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine has formally requested 30 VRS systems to extend this medevac capability to their fire and rescue units on the eastern front.
