Thai Aviation Services has begun Sikorsky S-92 helicopter simulator training at the CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre (MPTC), a joint venture of CAE and the Ministry of Finance of Brunei Darussalam.
Under a multi-year contract, Thai Aviation Services S-92 helicopter aircrews have started conducting their S-92 simulator training at the MPTC. Based in Bangkok, Thai Aviation Services operates a fleet of S-92 helicopters used primarily for offshore oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Thailand.
"We chose the CAE Brunei MPTC for our S-92 training because the simulator provides the needed realism for our helicopter-specific offshore oil and gas mission profile," said Captain Nattapat Pongsatitvittaya, Chief Pilot, Thai Aviation Services. "We also considered the added value to conduct search and rescue (SAR) mission training for potential future SAR operations at Thai Aviation Services."
The CAE 3000 Series S-92 helicopter mission simulator at the CAE Brunei MPTC features unprecedented realism for helicopter-specific mission training, including offshore oil and gas, search and rescue, and other types of operations. The simulator enables pilots to practice -- without risk -- challenging procedures such as low-level flight, confined area operations, autorotation and landing on platforms at sea. The CAE 3000 Series S-92 simulator features core CAE simulation technologies including the CAE True six Degree-of-Freedom (DOF) electric motion system and high-performance vibration platform to replicate vibration cues critical to helicopter pilots; a high-fidelity CAE Medallion-6000 image generator; and a direct projection 210 degree by 80 degree extreme field-of-view dome display system.
"We are pleased to welcome Thai Aviation Services to the list of customers training at the CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre," said Rozman Junaidi, General Manager, CAE Brunei MPTC. "Simulation-based training increases safety and efficiency while providing maximum training value to enhance crew readiness."
In addition to S-92 helicopter training, the CAE Brunei MPTC offers comprehensive training programs for the Pilatus PC-7 training aircraft and S-70i Black Hawk helicopter, which is operated by the Royal Brunei Air Force.
