Leonardo Helicopters (Chalet 5105) announced during the LABACE show in São Paulo that it has signed an agreement with CAE-Líder (a joint venture between CAE and Líder Aviação) to jointly sell AW139 flight simulator hours across South America.

The AW139 full-flight simulator (FFS), operated by CAE-Líder and jointly developed by CAE and Leonardo Helicopters, has been qualified to Level D by the Brazilian aviation regulator, ANAC.
