Euramec team up with Australia’s GeoSim to deliver Vulcan, a unique aerial firefighting simulation solution. “Development of the GeoSim Vulcan Firefighting Simulation solution was already well under way before these devastating wildfires in Australia in 2019,” Charles Du Plessis, MD GeoSim explained. “Our country is a on the frontline of this annual battleground as you could see on the horrific images portrayed in the press in 2019. We believe that our Aerial Firefighting Simulation Center will assist in further preparing our brave and skilled aerial aviators as they enter  into the 2020/21 fire season and Vulcan could well prove to be a real lifesaver in this annual battle.”
 
The aim of the Vulcan Simulation Center is to prepare our Aviators for the unexpected emergencies that can and do occur when flying into areas at low altitudes in adverse climatic conditions. Vulcan is designed to also support joint training exercises so that fire and rescue professionals are well practiced in mission preparation, communication, situational awareness and terrain familiarisation before they start to work as an effective team.
 
The new GeoSim firefighting sim solution is aimed at two important market segments:

 
Search and Rescue (SAR) and 
Aerial Firefighting (AFF)
 
Both involve exposure to unusual risk - especially in adverse conditions such as fighting wildfires. 
 
GeoSim is teaming up with EURAMEC to market and promote Vulcan as the turnkey aircrew training solution of choice for specialist SAR and AFF professionals.
 
“With its global sales and support network, and a proven track record of close personal attention to customer relationships around the world, EURAMEC is a preferred international flight simulation partner.”
 
EURAMEC is partnering with GeoSim Technologies to ensure that the simulators used in the Vulcan Center fully comply with EASA FNPT-II standards.
 
"Government agencies and private operators now have a powerful tool at their disposal with the Vulcan aerial firefighting sim solution. We look forward to serving the Aerial Firefighting communities around the world and protecting our natural resources and communities.” Bert Buyle, CEO EURAMEC said.
