Precision and Durability for Uninterrupted Training
The MTR is an exact, non-flying replica of the most advanced NH90 tactical troop transport helicopter of the 21st Century. Synthetic training devices make sense if procedures are extremely complex and thus original equipment could be damaged during training, when training would deplete the scarce original spare parts and significant cost saving potentials over the entire life cycle. The MTR fulfills all these criteria.
Utilizing long lasting materials and having short lead times for spares ordering generate an unprecedented availability of the training device for the customer.
Furthermore, initial procurement costs are 50 to 70% less compared with the alternative of using the original aircraft, and this without any compromise regarding the representativeness of maintenance procedures to reach the training objectives.
