Cassidian Delivers A New Eurofighter Flight Simulator To Spanish AF

Sim Will Be Used By The Aircrew Of The 14th Wing Of The Albacete Air Base

A new Eurofighter flight simulator to be used by the aircrew of the 14th Wing of the Albacete Air Base has been delivered by Cassidian, adding to the two already installed at the Morón de la Frontera Air Base in Seville. The simulator delivered is part of the ASTA advanced training system. Cassidian has been responsible for all tasks related to the installation and commissioning of this Cockpit Trainer/Interactive Pilot Station (CT/IPS-E) which, together with the Full Mission Simulator (FMS), form the ASTA.

The 19 ASTA systems in service in five of the nations operating the Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft – Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom – are intended for crew training. This ranges from familiarisation with the aircraft to actual missions in highly complex tactical environments, using aircraft software code tailored to the simulator to reflect the behaviour of the aircraft and its embedded systems with a high degree of fidelity. The simulators currently in service at the Morón de la Frontera Air Base have to date clocked up 6,500 hours of simulation including 4,800 training missions.
“At Cassidian, we work day in day out to develop our skills in order to provide our customers with the most advanced solutions to meet their requirements," said Pilar Albiac, Head of Cassidian’s Chief Operating Office and CEO of Cassidian Spain. "The delivery of this new Eurofighter simulator marks a new milestone for the industry and for our customer, the Spanish Air Force.”
