See the latest information on how CAE is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In late 2004, Germany's government signed a private finance initiative (PFI) contract with an industry consortium to provide comprehensive NH90 helicopter training services. The industry consortium includes CAE, Thales, Airbus Helicopters, and Rheinmetall Defence Electronics, who each own 25 percent of an operating company called Helicopter Flight Training Services (HFTS) GmbH.

HFTS is delivering NH90 training services to the German Armed Forces through 2022 as well as to other customers on a contract basis. Training is offered through three training centres located in Bueckeburg, Fassberg and Holzdorf where a total of four NH90 full-mission simulators are housed.
