Toll has completed its Factory Acceptance testing on the CAE 3000 Series AW139 full-flight simulator, the most advanced civil helicopter simulator available.
Representatives from Toll Helicopters, Toll Group’s provider of specialised helicopter services recently visited the CAE Inc facilities in Montreal, Canada, to test the simulator’s capabilities and infrastructure.
“We are happy to be at this stage of the simulator production and are looking forward to it arriving at the Aeromedical Crewing Excellence (ACE) Training Centre in mid-June to begin the next phase of its testing program.” Chris Andretzke, Project Engineer, Toll Helicopters, said.
The simulator will be qualified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators, and when it arrives, will be the first of its type in Australia and provide a much more convenient option for Australian aircrew training requirements.
“It will be the one of the first simulators that will have the Phase 7 software upgrade incorporated,” said Darryl Humphreys, senior AW139 pilot.
“Once installed at the ACE Training, it will allow us to deliver the highest fidelity training experience to operators of similar aircraft.”
