USAF C-130 aeromedical trainer ready

The C-130 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System for the United States Air Force (USAF) at Dobbins Air Reserve Base is now fully operational and ready for training, said maker CAE. The firm said that it believes the addition of a motion platform for an aeromedical fuselage trainer is the first in the world and will provide USAF aeromedical evacuation crews with a more realistic virtual training environment.

The system is intended to train USAF aeromedical crews for pre-flight, emergency procedures and in-flight patient care. The addition of a motion platform increases the realism and enables the aeromedical crews to rehearse in a safe, immersive training environment, which will ultimately improve patient safety and survivability during rescue missions, said CAE.

An electric motion system supports a fully-equipped C-130 fuselage trainer and replicates vibrations and turbulence encountered during take-off, landing, and in-flight. The trainer also boasts human patient simulators and a portable instructor operator station to provide control and customisation of a variety of aeromedical training scenarios.
