Rotorsim's Netherlands training facility opens

30th October 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rotorsim has announced that the Royal Netherlands Air Force has begun training at the relocated training facility at Maritime Air Base de Kooy in Den Helder, the Netherlands.

Training at the site has started on the NH90 Full Mission Flight Trainer (FMFT) following its relocation from the Rotorsim training centre in Sesto Calende, Italy.

Rotorsim is a Joint Venture between CAE and Leonardo.

In addition to the relocated Netherlands Ministry of Defence (NLMOD)-owned NH90 NATO Frigate Helicopter simulator cockpit at the facility, it will also be home to CAE’s new roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) full-mission simulator mothership. This system includes a six degree-of-freedom electric motion system, high-performance vibration platform to replicate vibration cues critical to helicopter pilots, and the latest CAE Medallion-6000 image generator with laser projector display system. The RO/RO cockpit design enables cockpits representing various helicopter types to be used in the mothership simulator platform, giving the NLMOD the flexibility to add simulator cockpits in the future.

CAE, under subcontract from Rotorsim, will now provide on-site maintenance and support services on the NH90 full-flight and mission trainer in Den Helder.
