On his Ariel View blog, Arie Egozi says linking simulators to a network could be a “winning combination when it comes to preparing air forces for warfare”. He uses the Israeli air force’s new Rangeless Helicopter Training and Safety System (HTS) to illustrate his point. During a ground-based demonstration late last year, HTS replicated the firing of helicopter-mounted weapons towards moving targets. The action was monitored in real time from a control building. “The system is designed to allow advanced joint forces training by utilising network interoperability with the Air Combat Manoeuvring Instrumentation system and combat training centres,” he says. David Learmount asks whether Norwegian Air Shuttle’s decision to set up a transatlantic operation with its registration and corporate headquarters in Ireland, will have any safety implications.
