The A400M CHT–E is a training system that provides realistic simulation for rear aircrew, support and ground crew personnel. It has a full-sized replica cargo hold that is equipped with cargo handling systems, high-fidelity role equipment, genuine control panels, lifelike components and fully functioning, hydraulic ally operated surfaces.
To prepare, control and evaluate training exercises, the simulator features a gallery mounted, fully interactive instructor station.
With the A400M CHT–E, initial type-rating qualifications in advanced airdrop, tactical procedures and operational methods can be achieved. Besides, the emergency drills can be also be trained with the help of the system.
The functional components of the simulator are similar to actual aircraft and it features a realistic cargo hold interior. It can be reconfigured as per mission requirements
Colonel Ludger Bette, commander of the 62nd Air Transport Wing, said: ‘The CHT - E is the most sophisticated system of its kind, and will support our training operations in excellent fashion. Its commissioning represents a major achievement for us, and will help us set new standards.’
