CAE's first full-motion MH-60R tactical operational flight trainer (TOFT) for the US Navy has entered into service at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, US, CAE president and general manager John Lenyo has said.

"The navy now has put into service comprehensive MH-60R Romeo training systems from CAE that are helping pilots, rear crews, and maintenance personnel prepare for mission success," he added.

The MH-60R TOFT includes an operational flight trainer (OFT) used to train pilots and co-pilots as well as a weapons tactics trainer (WTT), used to train sensor operators in the MH-60R Romeo helicopter.

The MH-60R TOFT features a six degree-of-freedom CAE True electric motion system as well as motion seats to provide vibration and motion for enhanced realism.

The company is the prime contractor for the design and manufacture of MH-60R TOFTs and MH-60R avionics maintenance trainers for the US Navy.
