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."
