Rega Signs Contract For A GrandNew Helicopter Simulator

The Device Will Become Operational In 2012

A contract has been signed between AgustaWestland and Rega, the Swiss SAR and EMS provider, for the supply of a state-of-the-art advanced simulator to meet the training requirements for Rega's new fleet of Da Vinci and GrandNew light twin helicopters. The simulator, designed and produced by AgustaWestland in Sesto Calende in Italy, will become operational in 2012 and is planned to be located adjacent to Zurich Airport in Switzerland.

"This contract for an advanced simulator will help Rega not only maximize the operational capabilities of its helicopters but also contribute to its ongoing commitment to safety and excellence," said AgustaWestland  Senior Vice President Training John Ponsonby after the signing. "We have had a long and successful partnership with Rega and we are delighted to see that partnership continuing and growing with this contract."

AgustaWestland will provide Rega with a Level 3 Flight Training Device / Level B Full Flight Simulator featuring a GrandNew light twin helicopter with IFR cockpit to offer VFR/IFR single and dual pilot flight and mission specific training. The simulator will help familiarise pilots with the latest technology found in the GrandNew cockpit, which features Flight-Logic Synthetic Vision EFIS (Electronic Flight Instrument System) with a FMS (Flight Management System), HTAWS (Helicopter Terrain Awareness Warning System), HITS (Highway In The Sky) and embedded flight recording functions. Under the contract AgustaWestland will also provide technical support and assistance in maintaining the device.
