Welcome to the world of simulation
For almost 30 years we have been blazing trails in the development of virtual solutions, searching for new areas of application. We design and construct training devices and simulators. The company’s shares are owned by Environmental Tectonics Corporation and AIRBUS Poland S.A.
Our history dates back to 1984. At the beginning, the company carried out projects in constructing flight simulators for institutional customers, including, mainly, the armed forces. The company had numerous successes in this regard as it developed products based on unique solutions.
Designing and building a flight simulator of a MIG-21 bis fighter using (for the first time in Poland) digital technology throughout the process.
Designing and constructing an I-22 Iryda training and combat aircraft flight simulator with a 6DoF motion system.
Designing and implementing strategic projects of full flight simulators for TS-11 ISKRA and PZL-130 ORLIK trainer aircraft as well as of Su22M4 combat aircraft and W-3WA SOKÓŁ helicopter.
Recognizing the benefits provided by using simulators and simulation in training devices, the company branched out into areas other than aviation. ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries played a key part in developing a comprehensive PT-91 tank simulator, while Polish State Railways commissioned a full EP09 locomotive simulator from us.
The company also has designed and manufactured simulators for emergency vehicle driver training. These simulators meet the requirements provided by law and are also used for the professional qualification of drivers. We have additionally developed research training simulators for Poland’s leading research centers. The capabilities of those simulators were then extended so that they can be used for psychophysical tests.
Police simulators hold an important place in the history of ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries. We design and build simulators for: training police car drivers, training commanders in conducting police operations, and training police officers in the proper use of firearms during interventions in elevated stress conditions and under time constraints.
Currently, after nearly 30 years of operations, ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries provides unique solutions in the area of simulation, designed for the individual needs of institutional and corporate customers, both domestic and foreign. We also provide specialized software (simulation software, virtual environment software) as well as visual databases.
Solutions by ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries prove useful in any application that requires training process support, taking care of the efficiency and safety of those processes while keeping the costs of our customers’ operations at an optimal level. We work with the aviation, training, automotive, railway and medical industries. Our solutions are successfully used in numerous countries in Europe and Asia as well as in The United States and Australia.

Simulators are used for training in simulated conditions that imitate real life. They imitate the behavior of an object in specified situations, conditions or scenarios. They are based on advanced mechatronic and IT technologies and on virtual reality. Simulators are considered an irreplaceable and safe training method.
Their scope of use can be very wide. Simulators are especially useful wherever there is the need to streamline and improve the effectiveness of schooling and training of specific professional groups, such as drivers, pilots, soldiers, police officers or rescuers. Simulators are more and more frequently used in industry – wherever there is a need for streamlining and improving the quality of designing products and processes through virtual prototyping, but also for recreational or leisure purposes.
Benefits from using simulators
Use of simulation and virtual solutions creates a possibility for training and/or experiencing extreme situations in safe conditions. Our simulators and trainers make it possible to significantly improve training quality and extend its scope to include additional possibilities. They create a realistic working environment and offer trainees the possibility to learn from their mistakes while eliminating risks to human health and life. They allow specific professional groups to be better prepared for their work. This applies in particular to professional groups who do their job under high-risk conditions, such as soldiers or police officers.
The use of virtual solutions in business makes the customer’s offer significantly more attractive, bolstering its position on the market.
First of all, the use of virtual solutions makes it possible to extend the product portfolio to include training components that are not commonly available and components which, when carried out in real-life conditions, pose a danger to the trainees and/or the environment. Furthermore, virtual training means operators can perform their duties efficiently while maintaining the highest quality standards.
The use of simulators contributes to a significant reduction in total costs of ownership. Using simulators manufactured by ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries, the customer receives comprehensive service throughout the product life cycle. Simulators are characterized by a high level of innovation, but they are also designed with the aim of optimizing life cycle costs and total costs of ownership (LCC /TCO).
Types of simulators
We have experience in manufacturing various types of simulators for institutional and corporate customers and for research centers. We continuously expand our portfolio in response to our customers’ unique challenges and needs, offering them professional, customized products.
