System for training helicopter pilots

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5678999.

The invention relates to a system for training helicopter pilots, more particularly to a system to be used as a highly efficient means for complementing present methods for training pilots. The object of the invention is avoiding the stress to which the trainee is subjected during the first flights and providing understanding of the helicopter behavior easily and without risk. The invention proposes a system basically comprised by a structure and a conventional helicopter permitting simulating stationary or translational actual flight without separating from the ground. The structure comprises a shiftable base having a support for free rotation of a frame from which the helicopter is suspended, so that it may raise and lower within set limits and also that it may be tilted to the sides in a restricted way. This giving the possibility of practicing various maneuvers, also considerably reducing the training cost.
