CAE to Provide a 2nd Full-mission Simulator for German Naval Helicopter Training

  • CAE GmbH to provide training systems to German Navy supporting NH90 Sea Lion

CAE today announced the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) has ordered a second full-mission simulator (FMS) to support German NH90 Sea Lion naval helicopter training, expanding an existing contract.

As part of its continued partnership with the German Navy, CAE will deliver a second set of training systems in 2024 to Nordholz Naval Air Station, which is the home of the German Naval Air Command. The German Navy is set to use the NH90 Sea Lion helicopter fleet worldwide as the successor of the MK41 Sea King helicopter.

CAE was awarded the original FMS in 2019 consisting of five training systems, networking, and tailored NH90 Sea Lion training. These simulation systems include an Operational Flight Trainer, Cockpit Procedure Trainer, and three Operational Tactical Trainers.
