Toll appointed by Leonardo to deliver the AW139 Level D Full Flight Simulator and training services for Australasia.
Toll Helicopters announced today that it has signed agreements with Leonardo (formerly Leonardo-Finmeccanica) to deliver the new AgustaWestland AW139 Level D Full Flight Simulator. This establishes Toll Helicopters as the sole Authorised Training Centre for the Australasian region, delivering the full suite of Leonardo’s AW139 pilot training packages.
The AW139 Full Flight Simulator, jointly developed by Leonardo and CAE, has been installed within Toll’s new state-of-the-art helicopter operational training centre in Sydney. The centre has successfully passed full Level D Flight Simulator CASA accreditation and EASA technical accreditation and is the first civil helicopter simulator to achieve both EASA and CASA recognition in Australia.
Initial feedback from pilots has been very positive about the quality of the device, its training capabilities and the unmatched level of realism of the synthetic flight experience.
