Elbit Systems announced it was awarded a contract valued at approximately US$96 million to supply a European country with a Rotary-Wing Mission Training Centre (Rotary-Wing MTC) and support services to train its Air Force, Army and Navy helicopter pilots and crews. The contract will be performed over a nine-year period, with an option to extend the maintenance services for an additional 10-year period.
The Rotary-Wing MTC is a networked multi-platform, mission-oriented, helicopter training centre that will provide multi-level training for helicopter pilots and aircrews across the customer’s armed forces. The new training centre will enable realistic simulated tactical training using all of the helicopter’s systems in a wide variety of mission scenarios. The Rotary-Wing MTC draws on the unique technologies and accumulated operational experience of the Company’s fighter aircraft tactical mission training centres.
