Thales’ Reality H full-flight simulator (FFS) has been selected by Caverton Helicopters for AW139 pilot training at its facility in Lagos, Nigeria, the company announced on 6 March.

The simulator will be installed at Caverton’s new training centre, which will provide helicopter pilot flight training including initial and recurrent. The centre is being set up on the same site as Caverton’s new maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State, Nigeria.

The Thales Reality H FFS will be used to provide realistic scenario-based flight and mission training to AW139 helicopter operators in the region as well as Caverton’s own pilots and crews. The simulator will support a wide range of training requirements including type rating, recurrent training and proficiency checks for both visual flight rules and instrument flight rules. It will be qualified to meet EASA Level D standard.

The simulator will enable pilots to safely learn to handle a multitude of system failures and overcome very complex malfunctions.
