Spain headquartered simulator manufacturer Entrol launched a brand new FTD simulator based on the Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane. The first unit of this model is the first FTD Level 2 based on the Sikorsky S-64 in the world. This helicopter is being used worldwide for firefighting purposes due to its high capacity and quick water-refilling ability, making it one of the best firefighting helicopters in the market. It can also be used in civil protection, heavy lift construction or timber harvesting.

Installed and certified as an FTD Level 2 in a customer’s premises in Southern Europe, at Heli Protection Europe srl Training Center in Rieti (Italy), this unit is equipped with the latest Entrol Technology, supported by more than fifteen years of experience.

“We are proud to have certified the first FTD Level 2 based on the Sikorsky S-64 in the world. We believe that this simulator will increase safety in firefighting operations, as well as help reduce the carbon footprint of the training. The team of engineers behind this project has done a remarkable job; I am grateful for having such a strong team in Entrol”, states Luis Olarte, CEO and Co-Founder of Entrol.

With this new simulator, Entrol keeps on looking for further technological improvements in the sector and reaffirms the will to fulfilling the needs customers worldwide have.
