FlightSafety International, that has a training centre in South Africa, is receiving outstanding reviews from U.S. Army personnel who are using the UH-72A Lakota simulators being delivered to Flight School XXI.

FlightSafety is teamed with CSRA and L-3 to provide equipment and services for U.S. Army aviation training at Flight School XXI.

Training began last month using the first four UH-72A Lakota devices FlightSafety delivered to Flight School XXI.  

The devices being delivered consist of Instrument Flight Trainers, Operational Flight Trainers, and Cockpit Procedures Trainers.  FlightSafety expects to deliver all 10 Cockpit Procedures Trainers by the end of 2016.  The 22 Lakota Instrument Flight Trainers and Operational Flight Trainers will enter service by early 2019.

“The positive feedback we are receiving regarding our Lakota devices clearly demonstrates the quality, fidelity and reliability of FlightSafety’s training products,” said Ray Johns, Executive Vice President, Government. “We are pleased that the devices are exceeding the requirements and expectations of the Army and are contributing to the highly effective training the flight crews receive.”
