Indonesia gets ex-RAAF simulator

9th September 2016 - 07:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Indonesian Air Force has taken delivery of a CAE-built C-130H full-mission simulator that was previously in-service with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), CAE announced on 6 September.

The Indonesian Air Force has acquired nine ex-RAAF Lockheed C-130H Hercules military transport aircraft along with the CAE-built simulator as part of a government-to-government agreement.

Airbus Group Australia Pacific is the prime contractor responsible for delivery of five of the C-130H aircraft together with spares and the simulator. Airbus subcontracted CAE Australia to relocate the C-130H simulator and provide the training facility to house it.

The CAE-built C-130H full-mission simulator is ready for training in the new facility. The facility is an extension of the Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angatan Udara (TNI-AU) C-130 training facility located at Halim Airbase near Jakarta.

Peter Redman, vice president and general manager, CAE Asia/Pacific, Defence and Security, said: ‘We have maintained and serviced this C-130H simulator since its entry into training with the RAAF more than 15 years ago so it still has many years of service remaining to support the safe, efficient training of Indonesian Air Force C-130H aircrews.’
