Aviation Training International (ATIL), the Boeing/Westland joint venture responsible for delivering Apache AH1 crews to the British Army Air Corps, has achieved the ready for training (RFT) standard required by the UK Ministry of Defence. A field-deployable simulator base at RAF Dishforth, Yorkshire, which passed a final assessment on 5 November, joins the main aircrew training centre at Army Air Corps HQ, Middle Wallop, Hampshire, a role conversion centre at RAF Wattisham and an engineering training school at Aborfield, near Reading, Berkshire.
