UFA Inc. (UFA) announced the successful delivery of four ATTower Tower Simulators to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). The simulation systems were delivered to the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Control Operations (CFSACO) in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada.
Each of the four ATTower simulators is comprised of a 12-channel 75-inch portrait LCD visual system providing photorealistic views of the Saguenay-Bagotville Airport (CYBG). Each simulator has instructor and pseudo pilot positions that include individually controllable camera channels to display 3D visuals, allowing them to see what the controllers see. Provided exercise editing tools allow the school to develop and maintain custom training content.
Lt. Col. Horner, CFSACO’s commandant noted, “The addition of UFA’s ATTower system to the RCAF’s training capability ensures the next generation of RCAF warfighters are provided the highest-fidelity simulation environment to better prepare them for current operational realities. With this new training capability, the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Control Operations can provide more advance levels of instruction, simulation and candidate development while also increasing our ability to force generate a greater number of qualified controllers and operators across multiple operational streams.”
The new systems allow CFSACO to increase training capacity by 50 percent and enable trainees to train independently to develop their skills.
The RCAF is the newest addition to UFA’s global military client base.
