The Eurocopter simulator lets helicopter pilots practice emergency procedure safely as it’s hard to practice emergency situations on the actual aircraft because it is often very dangerous. Nearly 50 pilots from four nations from Singapore, Australia, India and the United Arab Emirates, will train at the Eurocopter simulator this year.
