Helidax, a joint subsidiary of the DCI group and INAER, was created as a public private partnership (PPP) for the French Army’s Light Aviation flight school.

The ICDS glass cockpit provided by Sagem (Safran group) for the EC120B perfectly meets the expectations of the military flight instructors and student pilots from this school. After completing their training, the pilots will join the French army air arm, air force, navy, national gendarmerie or the Belgian army. The avionics system provided by Sagem for Helidax’s EC120B helicopters is operated under certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), with a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).

Sagem’s ICDS for EC120 helicopters is compatible with night vision goggles (NVG), and is a key to training student pilots in the demanding environment faced by modern combat helicopters (the NH-90 and Tiger in particular), for both day and night operations.

The ICDS features a multifunction display (MFD) of flight data, including navigation, engine readings, coupling with the PA85 two-axis autopilot, traffic management map and weather information. This data is also integrated in the digital attitude and heading reference system (AHRS). Depending on the cockpit design, the screens in the ICDS system can be installed in portrait or landscape mode. The ICDS has been certified by the Department of Transportation in Canada and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States.

Sagem’s ICDS has also been chosen to modernize the French air force’s Xingu twin-turboprop trainers, and for the AVIC AC311 helicopter in China.

Sagem, a high-tech company in the Safran group, holds world or European leadership positions in optronics, avionics, electronics and safety-critical software for both civil and military markets.

Sagem is the No. 1 company in Europe and No. 3 worldwide for inertial navigation systems (INS) used in air, land and naval applications. It is also the world leader in helicopter flight controls and the European leader in optronics and tactical UAV systems.

Operating across the globe through the Safran group, Sagem and its subsidiaries employ 7,500 people in Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Sagem is the commercial name of the company Sagem Défense Sécurité.
