CAE has delivered a fully equipped NH90 training centre to the German Navy during an official ceremony at the facility.

The advanced training facility includes multiple simulators for crew training for the NH90 NTH Sea Lion naval transport helicopter, an Operational Flight Trainer for training pilots and co-pilots, two Operational Tactics Trainers for the Tactical Coordinator and the rear crew that are networked with the OFT, plus two cockpit procedure trainers for pilots and TACCO to conduct targeted practice of individual procedures.

In addition to designing and manufacturing the trainers, CAE was also responsible for planning and implementing the facility. "CAE is pleased to make another important contribution to the operational readiness of the German Navy, delivering the NH90 NTH Sea Lion Training Centre," said Martin Seger, Managing Director of CAE GmbH. "This complete training solution demonstrates our commitment to the mission readiness of German Armed Forces, which we have proudly supported for over 60 years.”

"We have had to wait a long time for the delivery of the simulator and it has taken a lot of effort and commitment - now we are happy to have this state-of-the-art training device available,” said Naval Aviation commanding officer, Captain Broder Nielsen. “We are celebrating today, but at the same time we must continue to press ahead with the commissioning of the simulator for the Sea Tiger, which will be delivered to the naval aviators in 2025!"
