Indra contracted for French MRTT simulator
Indra has been contracted by Airbus Defence & Space to deliver a simulator for the French Air Force’s A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) fleet.
The simulator has a level D certification, which is the highest category for a system of this kind according to EASA standards.
Training will be provided for pilots and personnel in charge of refuelling operations, either by boom or probe-and-drogue, the two possible methods available with the MRTT.
This simulator replicates all kinds of possible tactical scenarios and operations, as well as the communications with control centres.
The cabin is an exact replica of the aircraft, equipped with the same instruments and visual systems.
The Spanish company provides simulators for aircraft including the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter and Airbus A400M transport, having delivered systems to Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Last year, Indra delivered a simulator for the A330 to train international pilots in Seville, Spain, and the company has also developed trainers for this aircraft, which are currently in operation.
