Case Study

RAC Helicopter Simulator & Trailer

Simulator & Trailer

The RAC wanted to design a life size simulator to take around the state for people to have a virtual reality experience of flying. OMB was tasked with the project to deliver a life like experience.

Project Description

We sourced a Bell Jet Ranger in poor condition, battered and without a windshield. Osborne Motor Bodies covered and rebuilt the frame with sheet metal. The helicopter was fitted out internally with bench seats and the dials were engraved into a replicate dashboard of an in-service helicopter. OMB then made new doors and a custom trailer to transport the helicopter.

Finally we painted and delivered the finished article. This project demonstrates that OMB are leaders in their fields and arguably the most versatile fabrication company in Australia.
