About the Helicopter Pilot Screening System FPS-H
The simulation system consists of two helicopter cockpits with a 3-channel projection system, an instructor station for controlling and monitoring the simulation sequence and lecture hall equipment for the preparation, follow-up and observation of ongoing missions. The two helicopter cockpits are similar to the workplace of future UH Tiger pilots. The function of the controls in the cockpit, the instrument panel, the flight characteristics and helicopter equipment, such as armament or sensors, can be adapted to the respective mission by the operator himself.
The Helicopter Pilot Screening System serves primarily to determine the aptitude of future pilots who have to survive the third and at the same time most demanding phase of their applicant screening within one week in Bueckeburg. Experienced flight instructors and psychologists observe and evaluate the abilities of the pilot candidates while they have to complete missions of increasing difficulty.
In addition to the actual users, the Heeresfliegerwaffenschule, Group Development, as well as the first flying units have recognized additional areas of application for the flexible and cost-effective simulation system in operation.
