Airbus Helicopters and ADAC HEMS Academy to establish a joint venture HMotion, a new simulator training centre for H135 and H145 helicopters. HMotion will offer a wide range of cost-effective training courses for helicopter personnel, including mission and critical flight training. Subject to approval by the relevant regulatory authorities, it is expected to be operational in early 2024. As a first step, HMotion will integrate the full-flight simulators located at the Airbus Helicopters site in Donauwörth and at the ADAC HEMS Academy in Sankt Augustin near Bonn. In a second step, in 2025, all simulator activities will be transferred  to a new state-of-the-art training centre in Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich, which is easily accessible for international customers with Munich International Airport close by.

Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters, commented: "With the creation of HMotion, we will further enhance the training capabilities for our H135 and H145 customers. We will combine the best of two worlds: the data and knowledge of Airbus as the helicopter manufacturer with the experience of ADAC Luftrettung, a world-renowned helicopter operator.”

Frédéric Bruder, Managing Director of ADAC Luftrettung, said: "The collaboration between our two companies will create the world's most modern simulator training centre for H135 and H145 helicopters." 

Airbus Helicopters’ training and flight operations’ goal is to design and provide innovative solutions to support its customers – which is key to enhancing operational safety. Efficient helicopter operations are directly linked to the proficiency of pilots, flight crew and technicians, as well as their ability to safely operate and maintain rotorcraft during a full range of conditions and missions.

The ADAC HEMS Academy is setting up a new, state-of-the-art location in Oberpfaffenhofen for the training and further education of helicopter pilots and medical crews. Here, at the future headquarters of HMotion, the best conditions will be created for personnel development (in helicopter flight operations and emergency and acute medical administration), with even more opportunities for qualified safety and team training in theory and practice.
