Tokyo Metropolitan Government Evaluates AW609 Tiltrotor’s Unique Capabilities to Revolutionize Connections with Ogasawara Island


The Tokyo Metropolitan Government recently announced the intention to evaluate the AW609 multirole commercial tiltrotor’s unique capabilities to deliver unprecedented levels of transport to Ogasawara island in the future. The distinguished characteristics of the world’s first commercial tiltrotor, combining turboprop-like performance (speed, range, altitude) and rotorcraft versatility (vertical takeoff/landing and hovering) would deliver outstanding services to reach Ogasawara, approximately 1,000 km from Tokyo. Missions would be performed in all weather conditions and with limited infrastructural impact thanks to its helicopter-like footprint.


The AW609 excels at providing fast point-to-point transportation at long ranges, whether it is connecting city centers or providing timely access to remote locations. Thanks to 275 knots speed,


a 25,000-foot altitude, and a 1,000 nm maximum range, users will benefit from the AW609’s unique ability to fly above adverse weather in the comfort of a pressurized cabin while maintaining rotorcraft vertical takeoff and landing/hovering versatility. Modern “green” technology ensures reduced emissions and noise. The AW609 is ideally suited to meet a range of operational requirements in Japan such as passenger transport, EMS, SAR, surveillance, electronic newsgathering and VVIP transport. With a fleet of over 130 helicopters of various models in Japan performing a wide variety of civil, public service, and military missions, Leonardo has a long-standing, in-country presence with a comprehensive support service network that will benefit the AW609. The AW609 would support Japan in the introduction of innovative technology to meet connection and public service requirements across the nation in normal, emergency, and extreme natural events conditions.


The AW609 will be the first civil certified tiltrotor aircraft and is poised to transform private and business travel, emergency medical services (EMS), search and rescue (SAR), offshore operations, and patrol, etc. The AW609 carries up to nine passengers, flying safely above inclement weather and in known icing conditions. The first two production AW609s are currently being assembled in Philadelphia. The AW609 has great interest from around the world and across all missions, including EMS, SAR, VIP/corporate transport, offshore resource development, and government/public service duties. Customers will be provided with comprehensive support and training packages primarily headquartered at the company’s new training academy in Philadelphia. An advanced Flight Training Device and the world’s first AW609 full flight simulator will be available for training later this year.


“FlightSafety is proud to support the efforts of the Naval Air Systems Command and Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division to ensure the readiness of current and next-generation helicopter and tilt- rotor pilots for the United States Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and selected allied nations,” said Mike King, president of FlightSafety Services Corporation.


FlightSafety International Selected to Provide Aircrew Training Services


FlightSafety International was recently awarded a contract to provide TH-73A aircrew training services (ATS) in support of the Advanced Helicopter Training System.


28 Sept/Oct 2020


As the prime contractor for the TH-73A Aircrew Training Services, FlightSafety will provide contractor instructional services (CIS) and availability on 18 Level 6 and Level 7 flight simulation training devices, image generators, visual databases, projectors, and two central control stations. They will be used to support hover, formation flight, night vision device, and ship board operations training, and course rules familiarity. FlightSafety will also install, operate, and maintain the training devices, and provide curriculum support.


The training will be performed by contract instructors and Training Air Wing Five instructor pilots.


The TH-73A Advanced Helicopter Training System is the replacement for the TH-57B/TH-57C program. The flight simulation training devices will be used during the transition to the TH-73A for curriculum design, subsequent validation and verification, and student naval aviator training.


The contract commenced on Sept. 1, 2020. Delivery of the training devices and related equipment is scheduled to begin in 2021 and will continue through 2028.
