Training and Simulation
Bluedrop designs and develops advanced training solutions from procedure-based courseware through to immersive simulation for crew-based mission operations. Specializing in high-fidelity helicopter rear crew simulators for training complex tasks such as hoisting and sling load management, Bluedrop provides the ‘full flight’ training device equivalent for rear crew operators. With the ability to physically interact with your immersive virtual environment and a live cable with high fidelity physics-based reactions to wind loading, rotor wash and load geometry, complex rescue scenarios can be trained in a low risk, environmentally friendly manner to provide cost-savings and increased proficiency.
