The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) participated in the NH90 Flight Simulator inauguration ceremony at the Nordholz Naval Airbase in Germany (Fliegerhorst Nordholz). This event marked an important milestone as the project to deliver a new training capability on NH90 Sea Lion helicopters for the German Navy has entered the final phase. The achievement was celebrated alongside representatives from CAE, the awarded company, a delegation from the Federal Office of Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support of the German Ministry of Defence (BAAINBw) and the German Navy.

 

NSPA supports the Germany Navy with NH90 Full Mission Simulator (FMS) through the contract awarded to CAE signed on 19 November 2019. The kick-Off Meeting for the first NH90 Simulator Center, consisting of infrastructure and one FMS and the option for a second one, was held at the end of November 2019. The option for the second FMS was later exercised and it is now a firm order.

“Today marks the successful outcome of 5 years of excellent cooperation between the German Navy, industry (CAE) and NSPA. This has brought us to the Ready For Training date where we have a fully functioning Flight Simulator System, which will undoubtedly be an asset to Germany for the foreseeable future,” said Daniele Cucchi, Programme Manager, Aviation Support Programme Office, NSPA.

This NH90 FMS will enable the German Navy force to benefit from an immersive training experience, increasing their operational readiness due to its infrastructure and its five different training stations. For the first time, crew members can practice operations and processes in a networked simulation network, on separated devices. One FMS consists of five flight-training devices:

  • Operational Flight Trainer
  • Rear Cabin Trainer for Door Gunning, Hoist/Winch Operations and Helicopter In-Flight Refueling
  • Tactical Trainer for the Tactical Coordinator
  • Cockpit Procedure Trainer
  • Procedure Trainer for Tactical Coordinator

 

 

All five devices can operate stand alone, in different combinations or even in linked mode to fly with two entities in one scenario. The Rear Cabin Trainer is unique in the world, being the first Rear Cabin Trainer on motion, capable of offering a training solution with AR/VR for Hoist/Winch Operations and with a full visual dome for Door Gunning and Helicopter In-Flight Refueling.
