On the occasion of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) day on 15 June 2019, Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH handed over an NTH90 MTR FC brand-new maintenance training rig to the German Navy Air Wing 5 in Nordholz, Germany, in a formal ceremony.
The maintenance training rig with functional cockpit is a training means for future aircraft technicians on the German Naval Transport Helicopter 90, which is bound for tasks on board of ships and on shore to support naval operations.
The unique rig combines learning hands-on mechanical tasks as well as electronic tasks for qualification and certification of aircraft technicians, thus almost completely avoiding the use of the flying platform for technicians. The rig has been delivered after only 22 months of development and production, with a first try on-site-acceptance-test and within the contracted framework of performance, time, quality and cost. Maintenance training rig is ready for training before the flying platform is scheduled to enter service later this year.
