New Spanish Bell 429 FFS and Training Facility Receives EASA Certification
Posted: 2017 Jan 10
 
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification has been accorded to the new Bell Helicopter Training Academy (BTA) in Valencia, Spain and its Bell 429 Full Flight Simulator (FFS). The grant of certification marks the official completion of the training facility and it is now fully operational. Regularly scheduled classes will begin this month.
 
“We are extremely pleased with the certification achievements for our training academy in Valencia,” said Ray Lamas, general manager, Global Customer Training at Bell Helicopter. “Customers have asked for global training solutions and we’ve heard them. Our collaboration with TRU in Valencia will expand our capabilities for our customers in the region and bring our world-class training in a first-rate simulator and facility much closer to them.”
 
The new training centre will meet the requirements that European, Middle Eastern and other global customers have for crew training and BTA-Valencia will initially meet the needs for pilot training on the Bell 429. Training will be conducted through TRU Simulation + Training’s EASA qualified Level D Bell 429 FFS, which has a Level D certification. 
 
Now fully operational, BTA-Valencia offers EASA initial type rating and recurrent courses, regular factory initial and refresher training, along with the option for wet and dry lease contracts to Bell Helicopter’s global customer base. BTA-Valencia instructors each have more than 5,000 hours of helicopter experience across multiple platforms and bring English, French, Spanish and Italian language capabilities to the facility. 
 
The Bell 429 FFS is built on TRU’s ODYSSEY H platform and was developed specifically to meet the training requirements of helicopter pilots.
