A further research could reveal the possible partnerships for the establishment of common simulator helicopter training centers in Europe. Including in the scope of the new study both NATO and non-NATO European countries would be highly recommended. Another study could adopt the findings of this research and the regression models to non-NATO European countries.
Countries that according to the research justify the establishment of a training center should proceed to a feasibility study with a simultaneous elaboration of an ISD/SAT derived training system. This should reveal their exact needs on training devices and should provide them with the appropriate data to proceed to a PFI solution.
It is also recommended for the countries that qualified and the countries that were close to qualify for a center to adjust the results to the number of pilots they intent to train and not just their number of helicopters, as described within the study.
Countries should try to minimize helicopter type diversity within their fleets and especially among different branches (Air Force, Army, Navy, etc). This would give them the opportunity to substantiate more easily the purchase of training devices, and thus the establishment of a training center.
Military organization should elaborate an ISD/SAT helicopter training system and plan their procurements from a holistic point of view; all training needs would be revealed and a PFI solution would be easily substantiated.
EU should promote the idea of a common defense policy. A closer collaboration between NATO European countries could ultimately reduce helicopter type diversity among countries too. This would facilitate the establishment of international training centers and the efficient utilization of available resources.
NATO should facilitate the establishment of helicopter training centers that can be interconnected and international collective training could be conducted. A NATO Research and Technology Organization (RTO) study on the characteristics and specifications of such centers is highly recommended. A standardization agreement (STANAG) would be ideal for NATO countries that are not familiar with the idea, the purpose and the technicalities of a simulation training center. It would also promote the idea of ISD/SAT derived training systems, especially to the Eastern European countries that recently joined the alliance and are not extensively familiarized with these concepts yet.
