PARIS, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Airbus Military has opened a new simulator training facility in Spain for the A400M airlifter and other military derivatives of its commercial aircraft.
The new center in Seville has two simulators for C295 and CN235 aircraft in operation. Four more simulators will be installed.
An A400M simulator will be in operation at the facility before the aircraft enters into service in 2012, European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company N.V., said in a news release.
EADS is Airbus Military's parent organization.
EADS said all simulators are capable of representing the full range of operations, including specialized activities such as flight with night vision goggles, rough field takeoffs and landings and air-drops of cargo loads or troops.
A range of other devices for training on specific aircraft systems, including the Fully Integrated Tactical System at the heart of Airbus Military's surveillance aircraft, will also be provided, the company said.
