London. CAE announced recently that its Airbus Helicopters H225 full-flight simulator (FFS) located in its Olso, Norway, training centre was qualified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and is now ready for training. The H225 training program offers initial and recurrent training as well as mission specific training for offshore oil and gas, search and rescue (SAR) and military operating profiles.

The CAE 3000 Series full-flight simulator is equipped with the CAE Tropos 6000 visual system and uses Airbus Helicopters’ original data package, providing unprecedented level of realism for pilot mission training. The CAE Oslo training centre is scheduled to become an Airbus Helicopters Approved Simulation Centre later this year.

“We are proud to partner with Airbus Helicopters to bring the first high-fidelity H225 training solution to the Scandinavian market,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Airbus Helicopters as we grow additional programs to meet the training needs of Airbus Helicopters’ customers worldwide.”CAE launches Airbus

“This new simulator reaffirms Airbus Helicopters’ efforts towards enhancing flight safety in the particularly harsh environment encountered in the North Sea,” said Matthieu Louvot, Airbus Helicopters Senior Vice President Support & Services. “The H225 program leverages the safest and most innovative technologies, and is close to our customers’ bases of operation.”
