TAMPA (BNS): The first MH-60R avionics maintenance trainer (AMT) built by CAE USA for US Navy has entered for training services at the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit (CNATTU) in Jacksonville, Florida.

The MH-60 AMT avionics and electronics technicians will get demonstration, instruction and also hands-on training on maintaining the MH-60R Romeo helicopter, which is used by the US Navy for anti-submarine warfare and surface attack.

“We are pleased as the US Navy has declared the first CAE-built MH-60R avionics maintenance trainer ready-for-training, the US Navy has now put into service the comprehensive MH-60R Romeo training systems from CAE that are helping pilots, rear crews, and maintenance personnel prepare for mission success," John Lenyo, president and general manager, CAE USA, said in an company news release Tuesday.

The second MH-60R AMT is under production and it will be delivered later this year to US Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island, California. CAE is also responsible for the designing and manufacturing of MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers (TOFT) for the US Navy.

The MH-60R TOFT includes both an MH-60R operational flight trainer for training pilots and an MH-60R weapons tactics trainer for training sensor operators and airborne tactics officers. The two training devices can operate independently or networked to provide a total aircrew mission training system.

Till now, US Navy has received two MH-60R TOFTs from CAE USA, the third MH-60R TOFT will be delivered to the Navy later this year.
