NH90 Simulator – Managing an Essential Major Capital Defence Project during COVID-19

20/04/2021 5:30 pm -7:30 pm

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) and NZDF procured a state-of-the-art simulator for the NH90 helicopter through a contract signed in 2018. Schedule delays meant that it was still in Canada as COVID hit in March 2020. The project team’s close working relationship with the contractor allowed installation of the simulator and achievement of operational status. It is currently being used to train NZDF pilots to safely and effectively operate the NH90 helicopter.

The event will consist of a brief on the NH90 Simulator project and lessons learnt, as well as an opportunity for questions and then (subject to availability) the chance to view the simulator in use.
