MISSION SIMULATOR QUALIFIED FOR TRAINING BY FAA


SERIES HELICOPTER FIRST CAE 3000


AS350 simulator in Phoenix, Arizona expands CAE’s civil heli- copter training centre global network to five locations


The first CAE 3000 Series helicopter mission simulator


is ready for training, located in Phoenix, Arizona. The Eurocopter AS350 B2 simulator was recently qualified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for Level 7 flight training device credits. According to CAE, the new simulation capability offers


"the most immersive, mission-focused experience ever for the civil helicopter market in an environment that is safer and more efficient than training in the aircraft." CAE developed the product family with extensive input from their Helicopter Advisory Board, which includes pilots, operators, manufactur- ers, and insurers. They chose to deploy this first CAE 3000 Series sim-


ulator in the western United States so the large number of AS350 operators in the region can train their pilots conve- niently close to their base of operations. The Phoenix location near the Sky Harbor International


Airport is the fifth site worldwide where CAE training is available for civil helicopter operators. Other locations include: 1. Bangalore, India, where a new CAE-built Bell 412 Level D full-flight


simulator (FFS) was recently qualified by regulatory authorities;


2.. Emirates CAE-Flight Training centre in Dubai, UAE (Bell 412 Level D FFS);


3. Rotorsim joint venture with AgustaWestland in Sesto Calende, Italy (A109 and AW139 Level D FFSs);


4. Morristown, New Jersey (Rotorsim AW139 plus a Sikorsky S76, both Level D FFSs).
