As a worldwide leader in technology and communication, Thales provides a variety of products and services to the aviation industry. Furthermore , Thales operates a training centre with helicopter simulators in Stavanger.
In 2016, Thales opened a new helicopter training and simulation centre in Stavanger. The training centre meets the increasing demand for training services for helicopter pilots in areas like Defence, Search & Rescues operations (SAR), Air Ambulance and Oil & Gas.
The simulator centre hosts the training facilities for Norway’s new SAR helicopter AW101. All pilots and crews in the 330-squadron receives training at our centre in Stavanger, as well as pilots from a number of international AW101 operators.
The Norwegian Air Ambulance operates eight H145-helicopters, and their crews visit the simulator centre for training purposes.

This simulator utilizes Thales’ Reality H Full Flight Simulator Level D as well as the revolutionary motion system Hexaline combined with high-resolution geo-specific imagery from the ThalesView™ image generator. The simulator can also be used for training of H215 crews.
