AgustaWestland to establish FlightSafety International as an AW139 Authorised Training Centre
AgustaWestland received approval of the FlightSafety International Learning Centre in Lafayette, Louisiana, USA as an AgustaWestland Authorised Training Centre. FlightSafety International has been providing AW139 Training since May, 2013. Courses for the popular AW139 intermediate helicopter delivered from the Learning Centre benefit from an AW139 Level D qualified Full Flight Simulator which features FlightSafety’s electric motion and control loading technology and new VITAL 1100 visual system. The advanced VITAL 1100 visual system provides highly realistic visuals designed for comprehensive training scenarios. It is optimized for training low level flight operations, offers increased scene content, vastly improved weather features and enhanced levels of detail for optimum cueing. VITAL 1100 delivers the ability for helicopter pilots and crews to be completely immersed in all training requirements. The level D device is complemented by a comprehensive suite of courseware and training aids. The establishment of FlightSafety by AgustaWestland as an Authorised Training Centre represents the Company’s commitment to strong training partnerships and to its expanding global support and training services.
