French Army Aviation NH90 Simulator Ready
Sogitec announces that NAHEMA (NATO Helicopter Management Agency) and the French Defense Procurement Agency have declared ready for training the French Army Aviation NH90 Full Flight Simulator (FFS)
Sogitec, August 28, 2015 - Sogitec Industries announces that NAHEMA and the French Defense Procurement Agency (Direction générale de l’armement, DGA) have declared ready for training the French Army Aviation NH90 Full Flight Simulator (FFS).
The FFS is operational at the French Army Aviation Academy NH90 Joint Training Center (Centre de formation interarmées, CFIA) in Le Cannet-des-Maures, south-eastern France.
The FFS is a true FMS (Full Mission Simulator) which benefits from real-helicopter-based modelling, and implements a tactical simulation that allows the full range of NH90 missions training. The FFS also meets flight and navigation training needs: conversion-to-type, instrument flight, malfunctions management, etc.
Upon the delivery of the FFS, networking of the CFIA Multi-Role Training Device (MRTD) and FFS was demonstrated successfully. This milestone paves the way for the development of NH90 crews’ collective networked training, and confirms SOGITEC’s status as French leader for distributed simulation (Rafale Simulation Centers networking, etc.).
The on-going international program provides for the development and production of seven NH90 training devices (6 MRTDs and 1 FFS) for the French Army and Navy, and the Finnish Army. 5 are already in service.
