Thales announces Blueway will be the launch customer for its training centre in Norway



Thales announces Blueway will be the launch customer for its training centre in Norway


Thales, January 21, 2014 - Blueway is a market leader in Scandinavian on-shore and off-shore helicopter services, specialising in shuttle services and replacement of flare tips, as well as search & rescue, infrastructure and environmental operations.

In particular, Blueway’s offshore activity is very well regarded in the Scandinavian oil and gas sector.

The Thales training centre will answer to the specific needs of Blueway pilots by tailoring the Thales Reality H simulator, the most advanced full flight simulator on the market, to Norwegian and Nordic Countries’ flight scenarios.

The contract has a duration of 10 years and training will initially be configured to the EC225, a market leading platform for offshore work. However, the modularity of the simulator will allow Thales to respond to changes in Blueway’s training needs as they arise.

The centre aims to meet the increasing demand for local training services for Oil & Gas helicopter operators. A further objective for the centre will be to open up new areas of training to support defence and search and rescue operations and emergency response in the region.

This contract further consolidates Thales’s growing position as one of Europe’s premier helicopter training providers and comes hot off the heels of the announcement of the shared facility operated with SAF in Albertville in the French Alps.

Johnny Skoglund, CEO of Blueway said: “We are delighted that Thales is opening this new training centre in Stavanger and that Blueway has contributed and been actively involved in establishing this centre. For Blueway having the opportunity to train our pilots locally clearly is an advantage. This partnership means that we can be more effective, the training will be based on Norwegian and Danish flight scenarios and will apply the high safety standards required which is important to us.”
