CH-148 Rescue Hoist Simulator for RCAF

12th January 2018 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bluedrop Training and Simulation has received a contract to deliver a virtual reality CH-148 Rescue Hoist Simulator for the training of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s (RCAF) maritime helicopter community, the company announced on 9 January.

The equipment will be delivered to the RCAF’s 12 Wing Shearwater in Nova Scotia.

The simulator will provide maritime crews the ability to complete mission-specific hoist and crew communication evolutions in operationally relevant environments.

The simulator will enhance crew readiness at reduced risk and cost while maximising the value of flight operations. Bluedrop will work with 12 Wing to modify simulator capabilities to address basic and advanced crew training requirements.

Jean-Claude Siew, vice president of technology and simulation, Bluedrop, said: ‘We are very pleased to continue our work with the maritime helicopter community, supporting their operations with this state-of-the-art training device.

'As Bluedrop is already a proud partner in the CH-148 training programme through the provision of instructors and courseware, this project underlines our extensive capabilities as a complete training systems integrator.’
