Reiser Simulation provides NH90 rear cabin trainer to NATO Helicopter Management Agency
November 22, 2023 By Helicopters Staff
Germany-based flight training firm Reiser Simulation and Training (RST) has recently been awarded a contract for the provision of the NH90 rear cabin trainer by NAHEMA (NATO Helicopter Management Agency) and the German Federal Armed Forces.
The NH90 rear cabin trainer is an advancement of RST’s NH90 maintenance training rig (MTR), tailored to meet the specific training needs of airmobile forces.
The versatile device will empower future NH90 users (i.e., paratroopers, infantry personnel) as well as crew members to acquire essential skills in air transport, medical evacuation (medevac), casualty evacuation (casevac), and various loading/unloading procedures encompassing a range of configurations.
The training device closely replicates the NH90 cabin, excluding the upper deck and rotor, while incorporating a reduced tail boom.
In a Nov. 22 news release, officials with Reiser said the project’s scope “is not limited to the development of the NH90 rear cabin trainer; it also includes the conversion of two existing original NH90 fuselages into this sophisticated training environment.”
The NH90 rear cabin trainer will be operational at the Air Manoeuvre Training and Exercise Centre located in Celle, Germany, with anticipated readiness in autumn 2024.
