CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre (MPTC) has launched a new training facility in Rimba, Brunei Darussalam, the company said in a statement.
The training centre is a joint venture between CAE, based in Canada, and the Government of Brunei Darussalam through the Ministry of Finance.
The preparation of the Rimba Digital Junction and the training facility will see the CAE Brunei MPTC deliver the following training:
The CAE Brunei MPTC features training for the Sikorsky S-92 helicopter in a new CAE 3000 Series S-92 simulator, which was recently certified by the European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) to Level D. Brunei Shell Petroleum S-92 helicopter pilots have begun training at the CAE Brunei MPTC, and it is expected that other international S-92 customers in the region will also train at the MPTC.
A CAE-built PC-7 flight training device (FTD) was recently installed at the CAE Brunei MPTC and will now be used to provide training for the PC-7 training aircraft. The PC-7 FTD will complement PC-7 pilot training programs by providing a flight simulator that is safe and cost-effective for procedural, familiarization and emergency training.
In late 2015, the CAE Brunei MPTC is expected to take delivery of a CAE 3000 Series S-70i Black Hawk helicopter simulator.
The CAE Brunei MPTC has also established an Emergency and Crisis Management Centre of Excellence that will provide relevant local authorities such as Brunei's Ministry of Home Affairs and National Disaster Management Centre (NDMC) with comprehensive training designed to better plan and prepare for emergencies.
Using simulation-based training, the CAE Brunei MPTC will offer emergency and crisis management training programs that will help improve coordination, response and operational decision-making during a range of emergency scenarios. The CAE Brunei MPTC will also be offering emergency and crisis management training to the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN).
