The most inefficient and expensive way to train is to require multiple configurations of a helicopter or worse; different helicopters to accomplish your training objectives. The TH-119 is equaly effective in all phases of helicopter training and accomplishes it with a single configuration. So whether you are teaching a student to hover, fly on NVGs, fly on intstruments, or lift an external load, the TH-119 does it all without having to manage a disparate fleet of helicopters.
The TH-119 has received an IFR supplementary type certificate from the FAA, completing the platform’s full training spectrum. Combining advanced capabilities typical of large, complex helicopters with the cost effectiveness and simplicity of a single engine airframe; the TH-119 uniquely offers the best of both worlds. Students will benefit from the IFR Genesys cockpit that provides an environment to practice and perform operations in low visibility and challenging conditions that they will face in the field.
What sets it apart?
From the skids up, the TH-119 offers all of the attributes of a versatile advanced rotary wing training helicopter including an optional flight/voice data and video capture capability. Superior durability and exceptional performance margin allows students to make mistakes and not jeopardize their safety or the aircraft, while being forgiving enough for the most basic and essential helicopter flight maneuvers such as hovering and touchdown autorotations.
Naval aviation is an uncompromising environment so a training aircraft needs to be up to the task. Its durable fuselage design easily withstands the stress of repeated full-contact auto-rotations which help to build essential flight survival skills. The helicopter is capable of performing full touchdown auto-rotations up to its maximum gross take-off weight.
