Pennant are thrilled to announce the launch of its Basic Helicopter Maintenance Trainer (BHMT).
Here at Pennant we have used our experience in transforming time expired airframes into ultra- modern customised training systems. The BHMT is the most recent in a line of synthetic rotary wing trainers and is now the latest addition to Pennant’s unique range of generic maintenance trainers.
It was discovered that the air-frame used to create the BHMT was originally built back in 1982 at Westlands in Weston-Super-Mare.
The freestanding helicopter trainer uses an optimum mix of high-fidelity replica and real aircraft components, which are installed in a refurbished air-frame representative of a generic rotary wing aircraft. The BHMT enables students to carry out practical training by performing standard maintenance procedures associated with rotary wing aircraft. There are a multitude of systems that enable students to carry out functional testing, fault diagnosis and remove/ install procedures, in a safe environment.
An external display provides animated schematics of simulated aircraft systems to provide visual feedback to students on the relationship between the various inputs and outputs on a typical Ground Run scenario.
The trainer covers knowledge and learning tasks involved with the following aviation training standards and qualiﬁcations: EASA/EMAR Pt66, FAA, City & Guilds and CASA MEA. Pennant understand the importance of aligning our products to qualification standards, so that apprentice engineers can safely perform maintenance tasks associated with rotary wing platforms, in a controlled environment.
