Boeing Installs Training Simulator
Boeing (NYSE:BA) announced that its Australian subsidiary has installed a crew training simulator for Bell 206B-1 Kiowa helicopters at the Oakey Army Aviation Training Center in Queensland.
The simulator aims to enable Boeing (NYSE:BA) Defense Australia’s flight instructors to refine and test training procedures for crews of the Kiowa, which is operated by the country’s military.
Mark Brownsey, AATTS project manager for Boeing (NYSE:BA) Defense Australia, said that, “Our investment in the Helicrew shows our ongoing commitment to supplying industry-leading, in-country instruction to align with the future of rotary wing training. As we mature this synthetic capability, Boeing (NYSE:BA) will work with our customer on opportunities to use the Helicrew to provide some pilot instruction in a more cost-effective, lower-risk environment than flying real Kiowas”.
