EC135 FHS

Operated by DLR in Germany, the variable stability EC135 FHS (Flying Helicopter Simulator) is used by students as part of the high order flight control system (HOFCS) phase of the syllabus. This research aircraft has been heavily modified, including the addition of a fly-by-LIGHT control system, which enables students to modify and optimize the aircraft’s handling qualities in real time during the flight.
