Caverton turns to CAE for Lagos simulator centre

Posted 11 June 2014 · Add Comment

Caverton Helicopters has contracted CAE to provide training centre operation services over six years. The pioneer training centre will be located in Lagos, Nigeria and is scheduled to be ready for operation in mid-2015.

CAE will be providing turnkey solutions that include the start-up, maintenance and operation of the training centre. With its six simulator bays, it will be one of the first complete commercial aviation training centres in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The centre will be equipped with a CAE 3000 Series AW 139 full-flight simulator (FFS), a CAE 7000XR Series Boeing 737 NG FFS and two CAE Simfinity Integrated Procedures Trainers (IPTs). These simulators were announced by CAE as sales to undisclosed customers in October 2013.
"Our pilots have been training with CAE and in helicopter training centres in the UAE, Qatar, the USA, Brazil, Italy and Norway over the past few years due to the unavailability of the required facilities in the region and we are very excited to be building the first ever commercial aviation training centre in Lagos, Nigeria, with CAE as our partner," said Adeniyi Makanjuola, chairman of Caverton Helicopters. "CAE's market leadership and "one-stop-shop" philosophy to training solutions and capacity development make them a strategic partner in our continuous efforts to enhance our local content commitment to the region."
"CAE is honoured to have been chosen by Caverton Helicopters for both our leadership and our ability to provide a comprehensive portfolio of training solutions tailored to meet its specific needs," said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Caverton to support the growing pilot training needs in the region."
As the largest operator of AW 139 aircraft in the region, Caverton is an authorised AgustaWestland service centre.
