The simulator was produced by M.A.K. Company. After the qualification tests, KVZ will be licensed by Rosaviatsia to operate the simulator. The mathematical model of the simulator was designed by KVZ on the basis of helicopter flight trials. The simulator has a visualization system and provides a full visualization of the areas of Sochi and Kazan.

“Ansat is becoming popular in the market. It is necessary to train customers to operate the helicopter. The simulator will ensure quality retraining of the personnel,” KVZ Managing Director Yuri Pustovgarov said. KVZ also operates Mi-8MTV simulator. It imitates night flights with night vision goggles. The simulator imitates vibration and sounds depending on the flight regime. KVZ created the training center in 1995. It trained nearly 9000 specialists in over 20 years.
