From mid 2016, Toll Helicopters will open and operate one of the most advanced aeromedical training centres in the world at Bankstown Airport, Sydney.
Our crews will train at the Aeromedical Crewing Excellence (ACE) Training Centre ,which will feature the highest fidelity AW139 training simulator along with other state-of-the-art training equipment such as a leading Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) simulator.
ACE Training Centre fly-through
Training at the Centre will provide our helicopter pilots, aircrew and specialist medical personnel, with a wide variety of world class, realistic training experiences at the one location with the aid of world-class equipment, including:
- Level D AW139 full flight simulator
- Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) simulator – the most advanced available in Australia
- Complete Aircrew Training Simulator – with a fully equipped cabin able to be exposed to a variety of simulated weather conditions including rain, wind, dust and fog
- Wet and dry winching simulators from AW 139 representative cabin – for various training scenarios such as winching and patient retrieval and ditching into water
Often aircrew training within aircraft is compromised by operational or engineering priorities, or poor weather. Training at the Aeromedical Crewing Excellence (ACE) Training centre will guarantee crew training outcomes to ensure compliance and regulatory approval to keep flying.
Through the facility, Toll will also provide training opportunities for other helicopter operators.
