Doha-based Gulf Helicopters has commissioned its new Agusta Westland AW139 full motion flight simulator.

The simulator incorporates the latest technical advancements in flight simulation, and “state of the art” graphic displays, was officially certified by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority last week initially as a Full Flight simulator (FFS) as per JAR-FSTD H to Level B.

Gulf Helicopters is the first helicopter operator of its size to commission its own flight simulator for the AW 139, and believes it will greatly enhance the quality of its in-house training and offering opportunities for other third party helicopter operators to meet their training requirements, either through a wet or dry lease arrangement.

The simulator is located in a newly constructed purpose-built training facility at Doha International Airport.
