On 20 February 2024 the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) awarded the Spanish defence company, Indra, a contract to develop, produce and deliver a full mission simulator for the Airbus H225M military helicopter.

The simulator system will have Level D certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency.

It will simulate day and night operations, under all possible challenging environmental conditions and be equipped with motion and vibration platforms.

Indra’s system will enable training in normal and emergency helicopter procedures, with special emphasis on training in all possible missions to be performed by the RSAF, such as search and rescue, aeromedical evacuation, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, among others.

It will also include advanced training analytics capabilities using biometric sensors to assist instructors in evaluating pilots and for more insights during de-briefing. 

One of the most outstanding features of this simulator is its Roll-in/Roll-out capability, which allows future potential helicopter cockpits to be interchanged in a single simulator, optimising the use of the system.
