CAE, Líder launch S-92 Sikorsky training in Sao Paulo

CAE, a global aviation training company, and Líder Aviação, the largest helicopter operator in Brazil, today announced that they are now offering S-92 Sikorsky aircraft training at CAE’s Sao Paulo training centre near Congonhas downtown airport. CAE and Líder already offer S-76 training in Sao Paulo.

The S-92 training program is an extension of the joint venture between CAE and Líder, and will support flight training for all of Líder’s S-92 pilots. Training will also be provided to other helicopter operators, including operators serving the growing demand for transportation in the offshore oil and gas fields of Brazil.

“This new simulator-based training program is part of our continuing investment in safety,” said Júnia Hermont, Líder Aviação superintendent. “Our pilots are now able to train in a mission-oriented environment, including emergency situation simulations, and training is domestic without the need to travel abroad.”

“We are proud to be Líder’s training partner in supporting the safety needs of such a vibrant helicopter market” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation and Training. “Our joint venture with Líder provides mission critical training using the most advanced simulation technology available for civil helicopters.”    

According to the companies’ press release, the CAE 3000 Series Level D full-flight simulator (FFS) provides both initial and recurrent training for all S-92 variants Training programs include a turnkey ‘wet’ solution with simulator training delivered by qualified instructors as well as advanced classroom training and brief-debrief capabilities. The first class is scheduled for December 8th.  Alternately, operator-led ‘dry’ training is also available immediately, the statement reads.
