CAE USA today announced that over the past few months, three new MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers (TOFT) have been declared ready-for-training and entered service for the US Navy.
One of the MH-60R TOFTs entered service at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, another entered service at Naval Station (NS) Mayport, and the third entered service at Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH), formerly Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay. All three MH-60R TOFTs are fixed-based simulators that are used to train pilots, co-pilots and sensor operators in the complete range of missions flown by the MH-60R helicopter.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with the U.S. Navy on the MH-60 Seahawk program," said Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA. "The Navy is increasingly leveraging synthetic training to cost-effectively train and prepare aircrews for mission success, and CAE is honored to play a role in delivering the high-fidelity simulators required to meet their training requirements."
In addition to these three new MH-60R TOFTs that entered service for the Navy, CAE USA also recently delivered an MH-60R/S TOFT to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan. This simulator is the first-of-its-kind and is reconfigurable between the MH-60S and MH-60R helicopter platforms. It is currently undergoing installation and integration testing, and will be ready-for-training later this summer.
