The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) has received and operationalised a helicopter flight simulator from Thales, the company announced on 22 March at the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace (LIMA) exhibition.
The simulator, which is currently being used to train RMAF pilots for the H120 light utility single engine helicopter from Airbus, has been operationalised at the RMAF College in Alor Setar, in the state of Kedah.
