  • Helicopter Academy to Train by Simulation of Flying (HATSOFF)

  • Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and CAE established a joint venture company in India called the Helicopter Academy to Train by Simulation of Flying (HATSOFF). In 2010, HATSOFF began operations at a new helicopter training centre in Bangalore, India. The HATSOFF training centre includes a CAE-built full-mission helicopter simulator that features CAE's revolutionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit design, which enables cockpits representing various helicopter types to be used in the simulator. The first training program offered at HATSOFF was for operators of the Bell 412 helicopter. This was followed in early 2011 by the civil/conventional variant of the HAL-built Dhruv helicopter - the first-ever simulator developed for the Dhruv and in 2012 by the Eurocopter Dauphin helicopter. The Bell 412, the Eurocopter Dauphin and civil/conventional variant of the Dhruv have all been certified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators, by India's Directorate General Civil Aviation (DGCA). An additional cockpit for the Indian Army/Air Force variant of the HAL-built Dhruv will be added to the HATSOFF training centre in the future.
