Germany to Modernize Army’s NH90 Flight Simulators

Helicopter Flight Training Systems (HFTS) has entered into an agreement to modernize flight simulators for the German Army Aviation Corps’ NH90 helicopters.

HFTS is a consortium in which Airbus Helicopter, CAE, Rheinmetall and Thales each hold an equal share.

“As part of the HFTS team, Rheinmetall is modernizing flight simulators for the German Army Aviation Corps’ NH90 helicopters. A contract to this effect was signed at the end of December 2019,” Rheinmetall said in a statement Monday.

Awarded to HFTS, the complete contract encompasses operation, service and maintenance of the simulators through to 2027, with a contractually guaranteed availability rate of at least 98%.

The modernization project involves upgrade of simulators to the latest helicopter standard called MR-1. This upgrade is accompanied by a renovation of the computer configurations, the replacement of the instructor station and the tactical situation animation software (CGF) and includes Level C certification with the European authority EASA.
