Leonardo-Finmeccanica announced it has signed agreements with Toll Helicopters of Australia (Toll Group) for the support of its new AgustaWestland AW139 Level D Full Flight Simulator and to establish Toll Helicopters as an authorized training center for the Australasian region.
The AW139 Full Flight Simulator, jointly developed by Leonardo and CAE and installed within Toll’s new state-of-the-art helicopter operational training center in Sydney, has successfully passed the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) initial qualification as Full Flight Simulator Level D, first civil helicopter simulator to achieve both EASA and CASA recognition in Australia.
Regarding the simulator, very positive feedback has been received by the pilots for the quality of the device, its training capabilities and the unmatched level of realism of the synthetic flight experience.
The simulator is now coming into service and it will benefit from continued updates to meet the latest product requirements set by Leonardo. The authorized training center agreement will establish Toll Helicopters as a regional center for the delivery of quality AW139 training courses fully compliant with Leonardo’s standards.
