The TOFT is operating at Naval Station Mayport near Jacksonville, Fla.
"We are pleased the Navy has declared the first CAE-built, full-motion MH-60R tactical operational flight trainer ready for training on-time and on-schedule," said John Lenyo, president and general manager, CAE USA. "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."
The MH-60R TOFT includes both an operational flight trainer used to train pilots and co-pilots and a weapons tactics trainer used to train sensor operators in the MH-60R helicopter. When networked and used in joint mode, they become an MH-60R TOFT to provide the Navy with a comprehensive training solution designed to provide a total aircrew mission training system.
CAE USA is the prime contractor responsible for the design and manufacture of MH-60R TOFTs as well as MH-60R avionics maintenance trainers for the Navy.
