The ACE Training Centre has been awarded the inaugural Innovation for Training Award at the 2019 Avalon Airshow.
The award-winning training centre was purpose-built to provide highly realistic mission simulation technology for helicopter pilots, aircrew and specialist personnel, such as air medical teams. Since opening its doors in October 2016, the world-class training facility with a focus on technical and non-technical skills has trained over 3000 people, setting the aeromedical training benchmark in Australia as well as internationally.
For Toll and NSW Ambulance, The ACE Training Centre has been a vision for, and an investment in, safety and standards – a step change in training systems that has delivered a higher level of professionalism in aviation and medical operations. It is viewed as one of the most advanced aeromedical training facilities in the world.
This is the first of its kind in the Asia Pacific region and one of the most significant investments in Helicopter Aeromedical operations in the world,” Mr Watkins said. “The newly established framework of integrated training truly reflects world’s best practice and our sense of service to the community.
