The AW109 FNPT II MCC simulator purchased by Global Aviation Training & Maintenance (GATML) will be installed, operated, and maintained by Caverton Aviation Training Center, which already operates an EASA certified Level D AW139 Full Flight Simulator in Lagos, Nigeria.
The simulator is equipped with a Spherical Visual system, 4 axis electromagnetic Vibration system and Entrol Mission Package, which includes hoist control for SAR mission and an external mirror, among other equipment.
With this simulator, Caverton Aviation Training Center will improve their range of training devices as well as reduce operational costs and increase the safety of its clients’ pilots.
“We are excited to introduce this Entrol AW109 FNPT II to our growing number of training devices in Nigeria and West Africa as a whole. The advent of COVID 19 opened our eyes to the fact that there is a huge void in training establishments and particularly access to training simulators. The need for affordable and accessible training is long overdue in West Africa and we are delighted to work with Entrol in making this a reality.”
“The stress and bureaucracy of getting visas, booking hotels and the increasing cost of flight tickets can now easily be avoided, saving operators time, and reducing capital flight.” Said Mrs. Lolade Abiola, Accountable Manager, at Caverton Aviation Training Center (CATC).
This AW109 simulator will be fourth Entrol simulator installed in Africa and the first one in Nigeria, increasing their presence in the continent.
