Indra has delivered the latest FMS (full mission simulator) to the NH90 Simulator Center, which has been in operation at the Spanish Army’s Aviation Academy (ACAVIET) CESIHEL Center, at the Agoncillo military base in La Rioja.

The simulation center consists of two level “D” FMS systems, an SSS System (Simulation Support System), a CBIT system (Computer-Based Interactive Training) and two PTTs (Part Task Trainers).

This simulation capability, developed and manufactured by Indra, is in addition to the existing ones for the Tiger and EC135 helicopters, capabilities which in the future will also feature the new Chinook CH47 F helicopter and the future naval tactical version of the NH90.

All the NH90 crews must continuously go through the CESIHEL to log the hours of simulated flights necessary to obtain and maintain their flight qualification, until the funds become available to finance the future simulation centers of the Air Force at Cuatro Vientos Air Base and Rota Naval Air Base.
