The NATO Support Agency (NSPA) has contracted CAE to provide maintenance and support services on theCAE-built Lynx full-mission flight trainer (FMFT) based at Naval Air Station (NAS) Nordholz in Germany. Under terms of the three-year contract, which includes an additional two option years, CAE will provide on-site maintenance services as well as logistics support and visual database development services.
“For more than 25 years, CAE has been our training partner on the Lynx helicopter and has done an excellent job providing the on-site maintenance and support required for our Lynx simulator,” said Lieutenant Torsten Junker, Simulator Officer for the Joint Lynx Simulator Training Establishment. “The simulator is used extensively to train Lynx aircrews from several nations so the ongoing maintenance and support is critical to its high availability and helping our aircrews maintain mission readiness.”
The Joint Lynx Simulator Training Establishment, originally located at Naval Air Station de Kooy in the Netherlands and relocated to NAS Nordholz in 2013, currently provides training support to Lynx aircrews from Germany, Denmark, and Portugal. The Lynx FMFT originally entered service in 1988 and has been upgraded byCAE numerous times over more than 25 years of service. The simulator has delivered more than 100,000 hours of training to Lynx aircrews in Europe.
