Following lengthy negotiations, L-3 Link UK and UAE-based Spatial Composite Solutions have signed a long-term agreement for the supply of full flight pilot simulator sub modules for L-3 Link's Reality Seven simulator manufacturing project.

The contract award follows a recent audit by L-3 Link of Spatial's manufacturing facility at Ras al Khaimah in the UAE and protracted negotiations to agree on all aspects of the new supply contract.

The five year agreement was signed by Nick Bendall, L-3 Link's Operations Director, and will result in Spatial supporting L-3 Link's commitment to provide training devices that deliver the lowest life cycle cost with the highest degrees of reliability.

"It's a great way to start the new year!" commented Joseph McKeever, Spatial's CEO. "Spatial is a home grown, privately owned UAE company. This award by L-3 Link recognises not only our design and manufacturing capability but also once again demonstrates Spatial's ability to win overseas contracts within the aviation training industry, including pending orders in the United States, Italy, India and Singapore. We look forward to 2016 with great confidence and self belief."
