HNZ Topflight and Don Wall, President & CEO of HNZ Group, were the recipients of the Airbus Helicopters Canada 2016 Innovation in Safety Award.   The award was presented in recognition of a contribution toward outstanding rotary wing aviation safety by a commitment to sustaining safe flying practices through a ground breaking approach.

HNZ Topflight’s recently introduced Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD) represents the very leading edge of technology in synthetic flight training, and was the object of the award.    The FSTD is the first in Canada to introduce the benefits of synthetic training to single engine helicopter operations.

“We are honored to accept this award,” said Wall.  Safety is fundamental to everything we do at HNZ and we are strongly committed to developing technologies to improve it.”
