Suzuyo signs on the line for AW139 sim
Leonardo is to send the first AW139 Full Flight Simulator to Japan which, combined with its E-Learning and procedural trainer capabilities, will maximise safety and operational effectiveness in the region.
Leonardo signs the contract with Suzuyo for establishing comprehensive AW139 training capabilities in Japan.

Suzuyo & Co of Japan has agreed to purchase an AW139 Level D full flight simulator (FFS) from Leonardo. It will be manufactured by Leonardo in collaboration with CAE and installed at the company's facilities in Mount Fuji Shizuoka airport, to be operated by its subsidiary Shizuoka Air Commuter Corporation (SACC). The contract marks the introduction of the first AW139 FFS in Japan which will further enhance safety and operation training effectiveness.

Leonardo will provide Suzuyo with its briefing and debriefing capabilities and additional training aids such as e-Learning, to support ground training delivery, and the ETD Lite-5 advanced procedural trainer capable of being reconfigurable to support both AW139 and AW109 GrandNew helicopters.

With around 60 AW139s in service in Japan today performing law enforcement, search and rescue over land and sea, fire-fighting and electronic newsgathering roles, the provision of pilot training services combining a FFS, other training tools and distance learning capabilities at SACC will further reinforce the level of service provided to existing and future operators of the helicopter.
