FSTD Types Overview

The different types of helicopter flight simulation training devices are defined in the EASA CS-FSTD (H) (Certification Specification for Flight Simulation Training Device). The definitions encompassed in this specification include the technical minimum requirements/standards for each level of qualification (or type) and the acceptable means of compliance to demonstrate compliance with the defined standards. Note: For the same type name, the definition included in the EASA regulation may differ from that included in the FAA regulation, because currently these two regulation standards are not fully harmonised.
