Leonardo Helicopters has selected CAE to provide its Series 3000 FFS full-flight simulators and the Rotorsim USA Leonardo-CAE joint training venture for its new Philadelphia Training Academy that will open next year. The 60,000-sq-ft academy will mirror Leonardo’s training syllabus approach used at its Sesto Calende, Italy center from ground to flight training, including digitalized course, flight, simulation, mission specific, and maintenance training. The Philadelphia center will include all new classrooms, customer lounges, AW119/AW139/AW609 maintenance training bays, virtual-enhanced training devices, and level-D flight simulators.
