The Caverton Offshore Supply Group (COSG) will install, operate, and maintain an AW109 FNPT II MCC simulator purchased by Global Aviation Training & Maintenance (GATML) at its aviation training center in Lagos.
The new simulator is equipped with a spherical visual system, 4 axis electromagnetic vibration system and an Entrol Mission Package, which includes hoist control for SAR mission and an external mirror, among other equipment.
It will be available at the Caverton Aviation Training Center (CATC) in Lagos, which already operates an EASA-certified Level D AW139 full flight simulator, Africa’s first level D helicopter simulator.
With this second simulator, the Caverton Aviation Training Center (CATC) will improve its range of training devices while reducing operational costs and increasing the safety of its clients’ pilots.
“We are excited to introduce this Entrol AW109 FNPT II to our growing number of training devices in Nigeria and West Africa as a whole. The advent of Covid 19 opened our eyes to the fact that there is a huge void in training establishments and particularly access to training simulators. The need for affordable and accessible training is long overdue in West Africa and we are delighted to work with Entrol in making this a reality,” said Mrs. Lolade Abiola, accountable manager at the Caverton Aviation Training Center (CATC).
