Qatar’s Gulf International Services (GIS) has said it has placed an order for a simulator with AgustaWestland to support its wholly-owned subsidiary Gulf Helicopter’s (GHC) pilot development training and make its centre a regional hub for the Middle East, Gulf Times has reported. The simulator, which would grow the AW189 global training reach across the Middle Eastern region, is to be delivered in offshore oil and gas configuration and is set to expand GHC’s training capability as an AgustaWestland Authorised Training Centre (ATC) and regional hub. GHC recently purchased 15 AW189 medium twin-engine helicopters.
