Good news for AW139 operators in Australia and the surrounding areas. Excellent result for Toll.

So both the YSBK and YBNE sims are level D,
But only one is certified.

Will it make a difference where pilots train?

It is a big $$ outlay for an industry that is going through some serious changes. Crude is going to see 30$ again and that was a big piece of the action for these airframes.

The only reason the price of crude will effect that operation is the price they pay for there fuel.
The big benefit of EMS it keeps on going regardless of the oil and gas price. Be a good industry to be in especially in the current industry climate.
Good on them looks like a good operation

Somewhat bigger than that, oil price is one thing govt contract is another. Aus govt cancelling gig after gig due to the the downturn in commodities. Toll has a gig based on the govt covering them probably based on crude at 100$ at the time, yes the buy price on the fuel is lower yet the govt returns on the massive drop in commodity related tax revenue was not factored in. And since the govt is the payer, sooner rather than later they will be looking to cut costs. EMS is at the end of the day way down on the list when it really comes to $$$. 10+ mil outlay at the least for a simulator of that calibre the return is just not going to be there.

Aus govt is getting hammered even in the alternative fuel market (solar/wind) due to loss of tax on revenue streams on the extraction of those commodities. As to date over $450 billion of proposed energy projects worldwide have been delayed since mid-2014 and pushed into 2017 and further and most will be canned. Singapore is a prime example with massive cuts in every sector due to the drop in oil with the govt looking to cut anywhere they can.

5 yrs ago the push to electric and higher density storage due to oil at 148$ is finally starting to produce serious in-roads into the traditional energy structure. Within 10 yrs you will see very few petrol powered cars, Tesla selling 500k units in a few days made all the other producers stop and look. The difference is Tesla takes yrs to get tooling sorted whereas Mercedes/Ford etc can re-tool for another vehicle in a week. When you have the German govt saying no more petrol produced vehicles after 2030 you can guarantee by early 2020 they will be done with. Another hit to the ATO revenue stream.

Finally UAV/UAS will start to take a much larger role in aerospace and again this is going to create another seismic shift in the industry that very few are prepared for.

I think Darkstar just dropped the mic!
I wish I had a catchy saying like everyone else...
