The buzz these days is safety, as it should be, with IIMC accidents topping the list.  As we all know, the learned ability to control the aircraft by reference to gauges only is a skill that rapidly degrades.  Yet pilots are constantly inadvertently flying into IIMC conditions and losing control of the aircraft.  Most of the time, they are not aware that their skills have degraded so rapidly.  The established training routine is to send pilots to a large training center every six months or every year for recurrent training.  This amounts to wishful thinking since those instrument skills begin to depreciate immediately unless that pilot regularly spends a minimum of 5 to 10 hours a month flying in the actual IFR environment.  FLYIT has seen CFIIs that spend all their time doing instrument instruction for a year or more and had lost their ability to fly in IIMC conditions because the student had been doing all the flying.


FLYIT has many Health Emergency Medical Services (HEMS), Law Enforcement and Search and Rescue customers who use the FLYIT Simulator scenario-based training to maintain confirmable instrument currency and IIMC capability for instrument and non-instrument rated pilots.  This requires time in the FLYIT Simulator every month to maintain a higher level of pilot skill.  Cost of training in the real helicopter is usually the reason skills are not maintained to a usable level, whereas a FLYIT Simulator only costs a few dollars per hour to operate.  IIMC training scenarios representing the chain of events leading up to IIMC accidents can be set up and saved for monthly training.  You can know exactly where your pilots’ IIMC skills are every day.  The FLYIT Simulator is also an excellent tool for evaluating the effects of sleep deprivation, work fatigue and apprehension.
