Same helicopter through all the phases of training.

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. 

Engineered to be the next generation trainer

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.

TH-119 for Naval Advanced Rotary Wing Training

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.

Safety Features - Unique features of the TH-119 include:

  • Safety FeaturesExceptional power margin maximizes safety
  • High resistance cocoon-type airframe
  • High visibility cockpit
  • 3.5 G shock absorbing skids
  • Dual independent hydraulic system
  • Dual flight controls
  • Dual independent SAS (Stability Augmentation System) and 3-Axis
    AFCS system

Instructional Features – Unique features of the TH-119 that make it an exceptional instructional helicopter.

  • Instructional FeaturesOptional flight/voice data and video capture capability with post-flight download
  • Centrally located observor seat that slides fore/aft, and 180 degrees side to side enables non-flying student to view the cockpit.
