RSAF Upgraded CH-47 Chinook Simulator Enters Service

SINGAPORE: CAE announced that an upgraded CH-47 Chinook helicopter full-mission simulator of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) has been put into service for training. CAE has recently upgraded the RSAF’s CH-47 Chinook full-mission simulator which now provides enhanced training to maintain aircrew’s mission readiness.

CAE provides customisation and upgrading of customers’ existing CH-47 full-mission simulators to incorporate new features in later variants of the CH-47 Chinook helicopters. Options for upgrades include incorporating a new avionics suite, the latest generation CAE Medallion-6000 image generator with Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database (OGC CDB) architecture, and enhanced synthetic and tactical environment simulation software. Upgraded simulators also feature a new or refurbished six-degree-of-freedom motion system and the implementation of a digital automatic flight control system.

“The Chinook helicopter is an iconic medium-to-heavy lift helicopter and CAE has played a key role helping prepare aircrews for operating this enduring platform,” said CAE’s Senior Vice President, Global Strategy & Business Development, Ian Bell.  “Many military customers including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and the Netherlands have leveraged training systems and services from CAE to help ensure their CH-47 aircrews are ready to carry out the range of missions the Chinooks are called on to perform.”

Currently, CAE Elektronik GmbH is part of a group of German aerospace companies that has partnered with Boeing to offer the CH-47 Chinook for the heavy-lift helicopter competition in Germany. CAE would have the responsibility for developing and supporting a range of aircrew training systems and services should the CH-47 Chinook helicopter be selected by the German government.
