Thai Aviation Services begins S-92 training
Thai Aviation Services has begun Sikorsky S-92 helicopter simulator training at the CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre (MPTC) under a multi-year contract, CAE announced on 8 March.
CAE Brunei MPTC is a joint venture of CAE and the Ministry of Finance of Brunei Darussalam.
Thai Aviation Services operates a fleet of S-92 helicopters used primarily for offshore oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Thailand.
The CAE 3000 Series S-92 helicopter mission simulator at the CAE Brunei MPTC features helicopter-specific mission training including offshore oil and gas, search and rescue, and other types of operations.
The simulator enables pilots to practice challenging procedures such as low-level flight, confined area operations, autorotation and landing on platforms at sea. The CAE 3000 Series S-92 simulator features the CAE True six Degree-of-Freedom (DOF) electric motion system and high performance vibration platform to replicate vibration cues critical to helicopter pilots; a high-fidelity CAE Medallion-6000 image generator; and a direct projection 210 degree by 80 degree extreme field-of-view dome display system.
By using simulation-based training, the CAE Brunei MPTC offers emergency and crisis management training programmes that will help improve coordination, response and operational decision-making during a range of emergency scenarios.
Rozman Junaidi, general manager, CAE Brunei MPTC, said: ‘We are pleased to welcome Thai Aviation Services to the list of customers training at the CAE Brunei MPTC. Simulation-based training increases safety and efficiency while providing maximum training value to enhance crew readiness.’
