TRU Simulation Snags Naval Sim Contract

King Air-Based T-54A to See New Simulator Arrangements, Avionics Trainers for Navy Students

TRU Simulation announced the receipt of a Multi-Engine Training System (METS) and Ground Based Training System (GBTS) contract from the Naval Air Warfare Center – Training Systems Division.

The base award will see them provide a trio of Unit Training Device (UTD) simulators in a King Air 260 standard configuration, a single Operational Flight Trainer simulator in the METS T-54A configuration, one Simulator Support Station for the METS T-54A sim, and 21 Desktop Trainers for avionics training. It's a pretty big deal for the brand, getting them some always popular military-used brand awareness and padding out the pocket book for 2024.

The simulators will be used as most any are, standing-in for much more expensive and irreplaceable airframes while students hone their skills on an unfamiliar system. The award includes an option to upgrade all 3 UTD King Air Sims into METS T-54A decks. The changeover probably won't be that big, given the King Air 260 was used as the basis for the military-approved T-54 in use today. All the simulators provided will support the wider T-54A mission, with even the smaller desktop trainers being used to educate students on Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion avionics as used in the real thing.

“We are honored the U.S. Navy has selected TRU Simulation to fulfill its modeling and simulation training needs by leveraging TRU’s history of building high-fidelity training devices,” said Jerry Messaris, vice president and general manager, TRU Simulation. “METS GBTS will modernize multi-engine aircraft training, providing an intermediate and advanced training platform for U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard aviators. The TRU Simulation team is pleased to support them in this mission.”
