Cicaré SVH4 is a fully operational helicopter simulator and trainer.
The Training System is formed by a platform that has eight self-directional wheels which allow it to easily move in all directions; and an air tank that has pneumatic cylinders which allow the helicopter to rise and descend adjusting the level of difficulty during the learning.
This learning has basically two stages. In the first stage, the platform remains fixed to the ground and the student learns how to use the RPM with the accelerator, how to rise and descend with collective pitch and how to turn using the pedals. In the second stage, the platform is freed from the ground allowing the trainer to move in all directions. In this stage, the student starts to use the cyclic pitch and to coordinate all commands.
