During the event, a simulator for Model 209 helicopters, dubbed as Gader 5, was made public. The system, which has been designed and developed indigenously by domestic experts, helps 209 helicopter pilots hone their flying skills while firing the TOW missiles mounted on their combat aircraft. The Model 209 combat chopper is an indigenous variant of the US-made Cobra helicopter.

A new surveillance flight project was also introduced which plays a significant role in monitoring helicopter missions.

Later, filters for 206, 209, 214, 205 and Chinook helicopters, which have been built for the first time in Iran, were displayed.

In July 2015, Iran launched home-made simulator for Mig-29 fighter jets at Tehran's International Mehrabad Airport in the presence of senior Air Force commanders. In April 2015, Iran unveiled and launched its first home-made Mirage fighter jet simulator in a ceremony attended by Commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) Brigadier General Hassan Shahsafi. The Mirage simulator system was designed and built by Iranian engineers and all its parts were produced domestically.
