Canadian simulator company CAE signed two contracts with the Netherlands Ministry of Defense with a combined value of $59.4 million to design two full-mission simulators (FMS) for the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) as well as maintenance and support services. CAE will manufacture one C-130H FMS and one KDC-10 FMS for the RNLAF to support flight and mission training. Both simulators will be qualified to Level D standards by the Netherlands Militaire Luchtvaart Autoriteit (Military Aviation Authority). The simulators will be delivered and made ready for training in 2009. The RNLAF operates the Lockheed Martin C-130H as a medium-lift transport aircraft, and operates the KDC-10 as a tanker and strategic transport.
