The Helicopter Academy to Train by Simulation of Flying (HATSOFF), the joint venture firm owned equally by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and CAE, has announced that its simulator cockpit for the civil/conventional variant of the Dhruv has arrived at the HATSOFF training centre in Bangalore following design and manufacture at CAEs facility in Montreal, Canada.

The Dhruv simulator cockpit will now be installed and integrated with the CAE-built full-mission simulator currently in operation at HATSOFF.

The simulator features CAE's revolutionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit design, which enables cockpits representing various helicopter types to be used in the simulator.

The cockpit for the civil/conventional variant of the Dhruv is the second for the HATSOFF training centre, and will be ready-for-training in May 2011. The first cockpit for the simulator represents the Bell 412 helicopter.

Training for Bell 412 operators commenced in July 2010.
