CAE wins the UAE military helicopter training contract

Posted 21 June 2016 · Add Comment

CAE has been awarded a contract to provide the UAE Joint Aviation Command (JAC) with a suite of helicopter simulators and training devices for the NorthStar Aviation 407 Multi-Role Helicopter (407MRH) as well as the Sikorsky UH-60M Armed Black Hawk (ABH).



For the 407MRH - a modified variant of the Bell 407GX specifically designed for light attack, close air support, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions - CAE will design and manufacture a high-fidelity, fixed-based Level-7 equivalent flight training device (FTD). In addition, CAE will provide a suite of desktop trainers and brief/debrief systems. The full suite of 407MRH training systems will be delivered to the UAE during 2017.
CAE said it will be working closely with NorthStar Aviation, who last year signed a collaboration agreement with the Candian company to conduct flight test data collection and support the development of high-fidelity training devices for the helicopter.
“The UAE as well as other Gulf Cooperation Council countries are making significant investments in simulation-based training. These will be the first simulator and training devices developed for the 407MRH so our partnership with NorthStar Aviation along with CAE's extensive experience with helicopter simulation will help ensure we deliver world-class training systems on-schedule,” said Gene Colabatistto, CAE's group president, defence & security.
CAE will also design and manufacture a UH-60M ABH full-mission simulator for the UAE JAC to be delivered in 2018.
The full-mission simulator for the Black Hawk helicopter will feature a six-degree-of-freedom motion system, vibration platform, and extreme field-of-view display system.
