CAE has bagged contracts to provide the Beechcraft T-6C ground-based training system and services for the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) valued at $110-million.

GBTS is an integrated training system that includes two T-6C operational flight trainers (OFTs), computer-based classroom training systems, and courseware customised for RNZAF pilot training.

The OFTs will include a high-fidelity replica of the T-6C cockpit with a fully-enclosed 270 degree by 70 degree field-of-view display system, the CAE-developed common database (CDB) which is an open database architecture that enhances the ability to correlate and rapidly update databases to support training and mission rehearsal requirements.

The T-6C GBTS are to be delivered to Ohakea in 2015.
