CAE Oxford Aviation Academy announced today the introduction of seven twin-engine Piper Seneca V training airplanes to CAE Oxford Aviation Academy’s fleet in Oxford, UK. These aircraft are part of an order for 34 training aircraft announced earlier this year. The first Seneca V aircraft will start to arrive at the Oxford academy in early 2014.
The aircraft are equipped with Garmin G1000 avionics suites and Garmin Traffic Advisory Systems. The aircraft will have satellite-enhanced, dual-antenna traffic awareness technology, enabling one-second updates for traffic situational awareness. The aircraft are also the first ab initio aircraft in the world to be factory-equipped with CAE-designed flight data analysis and cockpit video recording systems. These systems record data, audio and video and are important new additions to CAE Oxford Aviation Academy's Safety Management System (SMS). The recorded information will be replayed through the CAE Flightscape Insight flight data analysis software. It will enable students to debrief immediately after a flight using flight animation with synchronized audio/video and will allow CAE Oxford Aviation Academy to gather statistical trends for longer term safety and performance benefits. This initiative provides for more consistent high-level training, with objective flight animations and metrics to enhance the overall learning experience. Finally the Seneca aircraft will come equipped with full de-icing kits to enable maximum operational efficiency in the Northern European climate.
