On Course Solutions Selected by Cobham to Provide Pilot Training for HeliSAS Autopilot

Jim Shirey, president of On Course Solutions, Inc., announced that his company has been selected by Cobham to provide customer pilot training for Cobham’s HeliSAS Autopilot and Stability Augmentation System. Shirey remarked that, “I have no doubt that the significant stability enhancement provided by the HeliSAS System will have a very positive impact on the level of safety in our industry.” Shirey has logged more than 8500 flight hours of rotorcraft experience as a military and civilian pilot, flight instructor, and FAA DER helicopter flight test pilot. He has had extensive involvement with HeliSAS product development and certification. Shirey will work with authorized HeliSAS dealers after installation to provide post-installation system instruction to new owners. The new light-weight HeliSAS technology enhances safety by providing increased aircraft stability and coupled navigation options thereby reducing pilot. The product was recently certified by the FAA on the Bell 206B, 206L, and 407 models, and Eurocopter AS350 model series to include the EC 130 model. Cobham expects to begin deliveries of the HeliSAS System to authorized dealers in late June.
