RCAF CC-130J simulators certified to Level D
CAE has announced that the two CC-130J full-mission simulators built by the company for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) have been certified by Transport Canada to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.
CAE is providing a comprehensive aircrew training capability for Canada's CC-130J and CH-147F aircraft under the Operational Training Systems Provider (OTSP) programme.
Based at the new Air Mobility Training Centre (AMTC) at Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Canada, the two CC-130J simulators will form part of a full suite of academic and synthetic training systems to be used for qualification, conversion, refresher, and mission rehearsal training. CAE will also provide 20 years of in-service support for the AMTC in Trenton.
Pietro D'Ulisse, CAE's vice president and military business leader – Canada, said: ‘The Royal Canadian Air Force fully understands the value of simulation-based training, both for the cost benefits as well as the enhanced training and mission rehearsal capabilities it delivers. By formally certifying its two CC-130J simulators to Level D, the Department of National Defence will receive the highest fidelity training systems for its forces.’
