AW169 Flight Training Device ready for training

Finmeccanica-AgustaWestland announced the availability of a new AW169 Flight Training Device (FTD) at its A. Marchetti Training Academy in Sesto Calende, Italy. The device has been certified by a joint European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA ) and Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) team to FTD Level 2 as per CS-FSTD(H), the certification specification for Helicopter Flight Simulation Training Devices. The AW169 FTD has been designed and built by AgustaWestland and is operated by Rotorsim, a joint venture between CAE and AgustaWestland. The FTD offers the functionality of a Full Flight Simulator without motion, and is being introduced by Rotorsim to support AgustaWestland in delivering flight training to AW169 customers. Currently orders for nearly 150 new generation AW169 intermediate twin-engine helicopters have been placed by customers around the world for a range of applications including corporate transport, air ambulance and law enforcement. The AW169 FTD is the first training device to be certified following the EASA Operational Suitability Data (OSD) process and represents a key milestone of the AW169 programme, in preparation for the entry-into-service of the new type in a few months’ time.
