Three new MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers (TOFT) built for the U.S. Navy by CAE USA have been declared ready-for-training and have entered service for the Navy. The TOFTs are located at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Fla., Naval Station (NS) Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla., and Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH), formerly Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay. All three MH-60R TOFTs are fixed-based simulators that are used to train pilots, co-pilots and sensor operators in the complete range of missions flown by the MH-60R helicopter.
In addition to these three new MH-60R TOFTs that entered service for the Navy, CAE USA also recently delivered an MH-60R/S TOFT to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan. This simulator is reconfigurable between the MH-60S and MH-60R helicopter platforms. It is currently undergoing installation and integration testing, and will be ready-for-training later this summer.
