First Major MOD Production order for team formed around Lutra Associates
Training in embarking, disembarkation and escape drills on the Puma and Merlin helicopter is to be provided on two simulators to be supplied by Lutra Associates, in partnership with Oxford Specialist Coachbuilders. This £200,000 plus contract has been placed by the UK MOD’s Defence Equipment and Support Commercial team at Army HQ following a competitive tender.
The two units, which will be housed in modified ISO containers, have been designed to be easily moved to wherever the training is required. This will result in the Joint Helicopter Command and the Royal Air Force saving money and being able to re-allocate aircraft to more operational uses whilst at the same time providing improved skill levels for the troops being trained.
