UK Air Force Receives Cargo Trainer Enhanced For Airbus A400M Transport Plane

Rheinmetall and Airbus Defence & Space have supplied the Cargo Hold Trainer Enhanced (CHT-E) for the A400M transport plane to the Royal Air Force on October 20 at a formal handover ceremony.

This training system is located in the National Training Centre at the Royal Air Force station in Brize Norton, the company announced today.

Doris Lilkendey, head of the flight simulation product unit of Rheinmetall Defence Electronics, presented the station commander Group Captain Timothy T. Jones, and the commander of the No. 24 Squadron Wing Commander Daz Rawlins, with a lasered, illuminated model of the cargo hold simulator for the A400M.

Back in June of this year, Rheinmetall already reached the “ready for training” milestone with the CHT-E, to the complete satisfaction of the end customer and Airbus.

Airbus contracted with Rheinmetall to supply training simulators to several European air forces for Europe’s A400M transport plane.

The prime mission of the CHT-E is to enable realistic training for cargo hold and ground personnel without needing to use the original equipment.

Training options include mission-specific reconfiguration of the cargo hold, preparation for loading, loading and unloading, standard operating procedures while in flight and on the ground, and cooperation between multiple crews.
