DGCA to inspect,qualify conventional Dhruv simulator cockpit soon

India’s Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will be evaluating the Dhruv helicopter simulator cockpit during the last week of April. Currently being integrated at the Helicopter Academy to Train by Simulation of Flying (Hatsoff) facility in Bengaluru, the Dhruv simulator was designed and built at CAE’s facility in Montreal.
Wing Cdr. (ret.) C.D. Upadhyay, Hatsoff CEO, tells Aviation Week that the DGCA team will be qualifying the Dhruv simulator to the Level-D category. Pawan Hans pilots currently fly the civil variant of the Dhruv Advanced Light Helicopter, owned by India’s Oil and Natural Gas Commission and Border Security Force, which were among the first few customers of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.’s Dhruv civil variant.
