Elbit Systems’ Australian subsidiary, Elbit Systems of Australia (ESLA), will supply Beechcraft King Air B200 flight simulator training for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) South Eastern Section.
This project is an Australian first, with the training center as the first ever aeromedical training facility to combine training for pilots as well as doctors and nurses. The training center will be operated with an inclusive Elbit Systems solution that includes the establishment of the training center, its operation and the supply of trainers and training services, as well as maintenance.
The unique capability to simultaneously train flight and medical staff will provide an even higher level of aeromedical care for the RFDS patients and a safer operating environment for its staff while contributing to the development of Regional Australia.
The project is focused on innovation and will allow the RFDS to accommodate an aeromedical simulation and training facility, a cutting edge flight training center for Beechcraft King Air B200 aircraft, and a RFDS tourism and visitor center open to the public, enabling visitors to gain a taste of flying an aircraft.
