The Canadian Coast Guard took delivery of a new full-flight helicopter simulator to assist pilots who provide support to ships engaged in critical maritime work including aids to navigation, environmental response, icebreaking operations, and in support of search and rescue as needed. With a fleet of 22 helicopters, the simulator, designed and built by CAE Inc. in Montreal, Quebec, will become the main training tool for CCG helicopter pilots. Equipped with a revolutionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit conversion system, the full-flight simulator is equipped to provide training on Coast Guard’s two different helicopter types making it a first of its kind helicopter simulator in North America.
