CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre (MPTC)
The CAE Brunei Multi-Purpose Training Centre in Brunei
Darussalam was established in 2012 as a joint venture between CAE and the
Government of Brunei.
The development of the integrated training facility for the
CAE Brunei MPTC was completed in 2014 and the facility officially started training in September 2014. The CAE Brunei MPTC, located in Rimba, Brunei,
near the Brunei International Airport, is a world-class training facility that
is staffed and operated by Bruneians.
The CAE Brunei MPTC plays a key role in further developing the defence,
aviation and emergency/crisis management market segments in Brunei.
The CAE Brunei MPTC is one of the region's largest
helicopter simulator training facilities.
CAE has designed and manufactured one CAE 3000 Series helicopter mission
simulators representing the Sikorsky S-92 helicopter. The Sikorsky S-92
helicopter, which is used extensively by offshore oil and gas operators, is
currently in operation at the facility.
A second CAE 3000 Series helicopter mission simulator representing the S-70i
Black Hawk helicopter will be delivered to the facility by late 2015. The CAE Brunei MPTC also offers training for
the Pilatus PC-7 trainer aircraft. The
PC-7 flight training device (FTD) complements PC-7 pilot training programs by
providing a flight simulator that is safe and cost-effective for procedural,
familiarization and emergency training. The CAE Brunei MPTC offers
comprehensive classroom and simulator instruction for these platforms.
In addition, the CAE Brunei MPTC has established an
Emergency and Crisis Management Centre of Excellence that will provide relevant
local authorities such as Brunei’s Ministry of Home Affairs and National
Disaster Management Centre (NDMC) with comprehensive training designed to
better plan and prepare for emergencies.
Using simulation-based training, the CAE Brunei MPTC is offering
emergency and crisis management training programs that will help improve
coordination, response and operational decision-making during a range of
emergency scenarios. The CAE Brunei MPTC
will also be offering emergency and crisis management training to the
Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN).
The CAE Brunei MPTC plans to offer additional
simulation-based training programs in the future based on market demand and
requirements, including training solutions specifically for the energy,
aerospace, and healthcare market segments as well as other segments of defence
such as land and naval training solutions.
The CAE Brunei MPTC will serve customers in Brunei and the surrounding
Southeast Asia region while helping to grow high-technology, knowledge-based
industry in Brunei and provide high-quality jobs for the local economy.
