M-17 Helicopter Classroom Training Program
The Mi-17 is one of the most produced and widely used helicopters in the world. With this particular aircraft in such high demand UDC finds it imperative to offer training on this helicopter. Our goal is to exceed the learning curve by providing classroom settings, 3D Pilot Training Software and interactive full motion simulators for the Mi-17. These learning techniques can be used individually or in conjunction for a wider integrated flight training program.
In addition to Mi-17 helicopter training, UDC offers Mi-17 crew training and Mi-17 maintenance training that provide teaching modules with classroom mock-ups, models and working elements of helicopter subsystems. Training for the Mi-17/171 and Mi-25/35 subsystems are listed below:
- Fuel system
- Fire suppression
- Pneumatic systems/landing gear
- Heating and ventilation
- Control Systems
- Key structural components such as airframe, engine, main gear box and landing gear
M-17 Training Software
Programmed to provide either classroom or self-directed study to a high level of understanding of the aircraft, our Mi-17 Pilot Training Software was created to ensure all pilots, mechanics, and helicopter technicians are fully trained in the handling of every aspect of the helicopter and its flight procedures. This software walks trainees through every process from start to shutdown, including emergency and malfunction procedures. The emphasis is on clear 3D graphics to create situations in which the trainee can manipulate and view each individual system to see the real-time inner workings of the helicopter and how the machinery reacts to pilot controls inputs.
Included in the Mi-17 Pilot Training Software:
- Flight Manuals
- Full Instruction Sets for Normal Procedures
- Emergency and Malfunction Procedures
- Technical Descriptions and Plans
- Self-Administered Tests
The combination of these educational elements creates a training environment in which trainees are given the opportunity to virtually and comprehensively work through every aspect of the flight. Proficiency, refresher, and transition testing is also available to ensure their understanding of the course materials before experiencing it in the real world. The 3D modeling of the training software offers a comprehensive look at the individual systems and workings of the Mi-17 helicopter, while also allowing for a real-time view of gauges and their movements in actual flight. After completing these courses, pilots will be confident in their management and knowledge of the machine with which they are working.
Helicopter technicians and mechanics also benefit from the Mi-17 Pilot Training Software. It creates a training environment in which every mechanical system can be virtually deconstructed for a thorough understanding of the machinery and technology with which they are working. Technicians can hone in on areas and systems that they find to be challenging in the field to update and improve their servicing skills with detailed simulations of the interactions and components of the helicopter. Overall knowledge of the full workings of the helicopter may also be tested to increase helicopter technician proficiency.
