Coptersafety AW139 sim passes FAA scrutiny
Coptersafety's CAE AW139 is a full level-D flight simulator currently equipped with phase five avionics. The company will provide dry-lease simulator training for a vast number of FAA licensed pilots worldwide.

Finnish ATO Coptersafety has had its CAE AW139 full flight simulator qualified to Level-D by the FAA national simulator programme. Level-D qualification is only assigned to full-flight-simulators that meet the highest standards of the FAA.

“We at Coptersafety are excited to expand our training capabilities, and with the addition of FAA qualified full flight simulators, customers can focus on pilot training in a simulator with the highest level of qualification and capabilities,” states Matthew Presnal, regulatory compliance and engineering services manager, who is responsible for Coptersafety's FAA programmes.

With this latest certification, Coptersafety is now providing dry-lease simulator training for a vast number of FAA licensed pilots worldwide.

“Spreading the knowledge about safe operations is our number one goal,” Presnal continues. “And we're happy to now be able to reach pilots operating with both EASA and FAA licenses.” Pilots and crews can now book to train in an FAA qualified Level-D AW139 full-flight simulator for tasks such as airborne radar approaches, offshore standard approach procedures and NVG training tasks, among others.

Coptersafety's CAE AW139 is a full level-D flight simulator currently equipped with phase five avionics that can be easily but precisely configured to customer needs, regardless of mission type or weather scenario. It offers immersive and realistic training thanks to features such as cockpit vibration, smoke generation, 3D clouds and night scenes. Scenarios can be taken out of the known geographical locations and landing sites by creating scenes for a wide variety of gaming areas and fields of operation.

Different pressurising environments in known geographic locations and landing sites can also be modelled by Coptersafety's in-house visual modelling team based on customer requests.
