The government of Brunei and CAE, the Canadian developer of simulation systems, inaugurated on 8 September a jointly run centre to support the training of Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF).
CAE said the Multi-Purpose Training Centre (MPTC) will be used by the RBAF to train pilots on CAE 3000-series simulators for Sikorsky S-70i and S-92 helicopters. A CAE flight training device will also support the RBAF’s Pilatus PC-7 trainer aircraft.
The facility offers simulation-based crisis training geared towards supporting the Brunei Ministry of Home Affairs and Brunei National Disaster Management Centre in preparing for local and regional national disasters.
The establishment of the MPTC was announced in April 2012 as a joint venture between Brunei’s Ministry of Finance and CAE.
