Third simulator at Bristow Aberdeen

Bristow Helicopters has
invested around £4 million in an S76C++ full flight simulator for its Aberdeen training
facility. The new S76C++ simulator will join the S92 and EC225 simulators and
should be operational in April 2013.

Mike Imlach, director of European Operations for Bristow Helicopters said:
“With its training academy in Florida in the US and facilities in Gloucester
and Aberdeen in the UK, Bristow has established an
enviable reputation in the aviation industry with regards to helicopter pilot

He continued “We have experienced an ever increasing demand for simulator training
lately with both the S92 and EC225 simulators, based in our dedicated offshore
oil and gas facility in Aberdeen,
often working round the clock. With the addition of this third simulator we
will be able to meet the demand for training pilots on this type of aircraft,
which is commonly operated in the Southern North Sea
region and other areas around globe.”
