CAE today announced at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) that two helicopter aviation training programs are, or will soon be, ready for training
Training for Sikorsky S92 helicopter in Zhuhai, China
In support to the growing helicopter market in Asia, CAE and China Southern are offering a Sikorsky S92 helicopter training program in their Zhuhai Flight Training Center. The new FFS has been qualified to Level D in March 2015 and is now available for training. This follows a Sikorsky S92 helicopter training program deployed in CAE‘s Oslo, Norway, training centre last summer. The program is currently available for a variety of mission-specific training but is targeted principally at the Offshore and Search and Rescue (SAR) markets. CAE also offers Sikorsky S92 training in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Rimba, Brunei.
Training for Airbus Helicopters H225 in Oslo, Norway
CAE‘s first Airbus Helicopters H225 full-flight simulator will be qualified to the highest fidelity (Level D) and is scheduled to be ready for training in mid-2015 at the CAE Oslo training centre. The H225 program will offer initial, recurrent, and mission-specific training for the Offshore, Search and Rescue (SAR), VIP and other operating profiles. The H225 training program will provide an unprecedented level of realism for pilot mission training. The CAE 3000 Series simulator, which was developed specifically for the helicopter market, will be equipped with a CAE Tropos-6000 visual system and Airbus Helicopters’ original simulation package.
