CAE-Lider JV Strengthens Training Partnership with Leonardo Helicopters

Posted on Wednesday 8th March 2017 | Airline

CAE-Líder, the joint venture between CAE and Líder Aviação, has signed an agreement with Leonardo Helicopters designating CAE-Líder as the Recognised Flight Simulation Centre (RFSC) for the delivery of OEM-quality, AW139 flight-simulator hours supporting training in South America.

The recently deployed AW139 full-flight simulator (FFS), jointly developed by CAE and Leonardo Helicopters, has been qualified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators by the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) of Brazil. The CAE 3000 Series FFS has been ready for training since Fall 2016, supporting initial, recurrent and offshore oil and gas training for AW139 pilots in Saõ Paulo, Brazil and throughout South America.

The arrangement also includes a close working relationship on courseware and training standards with Leonardo's flagship A Marchetti Training Academy in Italy, which will support the approval process of the RFSC, and Leonardo Helicopters in Brazil who collaborates with CAE-Líder operationally.
