About us

The ADAC HEMS Academy is an integrated training center for helicopter pilots, doctors and paramedics in the air rescue service, and offers customized training programmes for all three professions.

In our 3 EASA approved Full Flight Simulators – EC135, EC145, H145 – we are able to offer dedicated and tailor-made flight training in a safety-oriented environment.

The Academy has been based in Sankt Augustin since July 2009, close to Cologne-Bonn airport.  The training center consists of a simulator hall, plus classrooms and meeting rooms, is equipped with state-of-the-art media technology, and offers possibilities for either individual, group or computer-based training.

A medical simulator (Christoph Sim®) and a trauma room complete the training center (the medical training takes place at separate location).

We keep our ´finger on the pulse´ of the operation. Experienced helicopter pilots are convinced that flight training in a simulated environment, performed by skilled instructors, significantly improves efficiency and enhances training benefits, while avoiding training risks involved in helicopter operations. The emphasis of simulator training at the HEMS Academy is on the mission, rather than flying techniques. Our aim is not only to train procedures, but also to rehearse situations, let the trainee make mistakes safely, to learn and hereby to create resilient pilots in their own environment with which they are familiar.
