Welcome to Ryan Aerospace. We specialize in the design, development, manufacture, installation and through-life support of cost-effective COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) helicopter and fast jet simulators and synthetic training devices for civil, military and emergency management applications.
Customers and users include Boeing, the Royal Air Force (United Kingdom), the Australian Navy, the Indonesian Navy, Selex ES (a Finmeccanica Company), the Saudi Arabian Military, the University of Montreal (Canada), CSIR (South Africa) and commercial training schools and human factors analysis labs to name just a few.
Ryan Aerospace simulators are modular and reconfigurable with a simple USB interface meaning they can operate on any simulator platform that can recognize a Windows gaming joystick.
Ryan Aerospace is pleased to announce that its new dual control HELICREW in a Blackhawk variant will be at I/ITSEC 2013 - the world's largest military simulation and training event in the United States from 2-5 December. We will be previewing the brand new VBS3 from Bohemia Interactive.
This machine is targeted fidelity at its best. It's very cost-effective without compromising on quality. It has a very small footprint and is robust enough to withstand tough environmental conditions making it easily deployable.
Whilst this machine has been specifically designed for mission rehearsal and combined arms training exercises using VBS2 and VBS3, its simple USB 'plug-and-play' interface means that it can be used with any simulation software. Further, the controls and instrument panel can easily be changed over in a modular fashion to represent any other large helicopter type.
The controls as pictured below are replica UH-60 Blackhawk controls but with limited switch functionality. This means that customers can choose only the switches they require. This can represent a huge cost-saving. In this configuration, the cyclic has a working force trim / trim release button, a four-way hat / trim switch and a two-position trigger switch but all of the other switches can be made functional if required.
Here is the more basic version - the HELIMOD. A single seat helicopter simulator platform. It's cost-effective, robust and takes up only a very small footprint making it deployable and ideal for mission rehearsal.
Ryan Aerospace is fast becoming known as a global leader in the design, manufacture and integration of affordable helicopter simulators for VBS2 and other software platforms with satisfied customers from all corners of the globe.
Pictured below is the HELIMOD on the integrated with an impressive visualization display from VDC Display Systems using five high quality LED projectors and image blending software in one neat unit that provides a fully immersive experience for the pilot / student / user without taking up a large footprint.
DUAL CONTROL COTS HELICOPTER CONTROL SYSTEM. INTRODUCING THE...
The HELICREW - a dual control variant of the popular HELIMOD. Pictured here is the HELICREW in a Kiowa (Bell 206) variant. It has a highly detailed and specific instrument panel including Sandell Multi-Function Displays (MFD's) and a working Garmin 430 GPS.
Pictured below is the HELICREW with three simple and cost-effective 42 inch LCD screens but a full 180 degree wrap-around dome can be seen in the next picture.
Here is the Ryan Aerospace HELICREW - using a 180 degree wrap around screen (curved in two directions) with three projectors providing a highly realistic, professional and immersive user experience. This unit is on show at Immersaview in Brisbane, Australia using their unique image blending and warping software. Contact us to make an appointment for a personalized showing.
By loosening off just four bolts, the whole instrument panel can be removed from the rails and replaced with another aircraft-specific module. All of the electronics and logic required for the instrument panel are contained within the cowling and are completely independent of the main base unit. Modules can be changed over in minutes.
The cyclics and collectives are also interchangeable.
