OCCAR, EDA’s partner in developing European defence capabilities, manages the Tiger Helicopter programme on behalf of Germany, France and Spain.
In a common approach towards personnel training, the German-French Tiger Helicopter Technical School (Deutsch-Französisches Ausbildungseinrichtung TIGER - DFAT) opened in 2003 in Fassberg, Germany. The mission of the School is to provide training to French and German Tiger Helicopter Technicians for the maintenance of the Tiger Helicopter in HAP and UHT versions. In 2013, the School will have also to start training technicians on the HAD version.
To analyse additional training needs and define the necessary training means to cover requirements of the German-French Tiger Helicopter Technical School, OCCAR wants to place a contract with industry.
To attract industry’s attention to this business opportunity, a contract notice has been published as a first step in the tendering process. Details on this contract notice can be found under this link: www.occar.int/221.
