The A109 Simulator at RNZAF Base Ohakea provides top quality training to the airforce pilots in a safe and effective manner. This state of the art machine is the only one of few in the southern hemisphere of its kind, and can simulate all kind of challenging situation for the pilots to test themselves at.
Running at just 10 percent of the cost of running an actual aircraft, the machine can run all day for 250 days of the year. Any free flying time can be loaned out to other agencies, such as the Royal Malaysian Airforce who put their pilots through their paces against the simulator.
