Sydney centre gets AW139 simulator

20th October 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Leonardo-Finmeccanica has selected Toll Helicopters to deliver AW139 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) training in Australia, the company announced on 18 October.

The AW139 Level D FFS, jointly developed by Leonardo and CAE, has been installed at Toll’s new helicopter operational training centre in Sydney. The company will provide AW139 pilot training packages fully compliant with Leonardo’s standards.

The simulator has on-board and off-board instructor operator consoles, including the ability to drive the simulator from the cockpit through a mobile tablet instructor/operator console. Existing instructional staff qualified on the CAE Series 3000 FFS will have their IOS qualification recognised by Toll, allowing a straight-forward transition onto the simulator.  

Chris Andretzke, Toll’s in-house flight test engineer, said: ‘I am delighted to be part of the skilled teams of Leonardo, CAE and Toll that have collaborated to deliver the Toll AW139 Level D FFS which is now ready for training. 

‘The fidelity achieved by combining the OEM flight model and aircraft systems, with the CAE300 platform built by the world leader in flight training devices, is unrivalled. Being part of the existing AW139 FFS network will provide ongoing benefits through timely upgrades to the device, keeping it closely aligned with the AW139 aircraft as enhanced capabilities are introduced.’
