Two Luviair pilots have recently completed Airbus Helicopter Eurocopter EC145 training at the ADAC HEMS Academy in Heinsberg, Germany.
HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) is the world’s first integrated training centre for helicopter pilots, emergency doctors and rescue paramedics in air rescue services. They were the first to provide each of these three professions with a specifically matched training programme.
The HEMS Academy started operations in Sankt Augustin near Cologne-Bonn Airport in July 2009. Consisting of a simulator hall, training and briefing rooms, the training centre is equipped with state-of-the-art media technology and provides opportunities for both individual (computer-based) and group training.
Nigel Watson, Accountable Manager at Luviair, says: “We used to send pilots to the US for EC145 simulator training, so this facility in Germany is very beneficial for us. HEMS has two full-flight EC135 and EC145 simulators which are available for pilot training.” HEMS has been accredited to FFS Level A according to JAR-FSTD H.
