The Senegalese Armed Forces will train Mi-35 attack helicopter and Mi-17 transport helicopter aircrews for collective and tactical operations leveraging Thales's expertise in training and simulation. The Thales helicopter mission simulator will enable pilots to acquire and develop the tactical skills and be mission-ready.

The Senegalese Armed Forces are involved in a wide range of deployments in remote theatres, conducing operations beyond the scope of traditional homeland defence. For this reason, they need to improve the tactical training of attack helicopter pilots.

The Thales helicopter mission trainer will allow pilot to train in a diverse array of programmable tactical scenarios, such as combat search and rescue, airland, naval operations or even commando insertion/extraction. All training will be analysed at a debriefing station to prepare for a successful mission.
