This RFT seeks the submission of Tenders to the Crown for consideration. The Crown is seeking to select a Tenderer to contract with the NZDF for the delivery and logistics support of the NH90 Simulator.

The New Zealand Government intends to procure a Simulator to train pilots to operate the NH90 Medium Utility Helicopter. The simulator is to be qualifiable to a minimum of Level 3 Flight Training Device as detailed in European Aviation Safety Agency Certification Specifications for Helicopter Flight Simulation Training Devices (EASA CS-FSTD(H)) (Initial Issue), however a full motion simulator is also acceptable.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force operates the TNZA variant of the NH90 helicopter and is seeking an NH90 Simulator which replicates the TNZA version of the helicopter as closely as possible. Other variants are acceptable, however the device’s software and hardware configuration is to be at a minimum of NAHEMA Final Operating Configuration (FOC) including five (5) instrument panel MFDs.

The selected prime contractor will also be responsible for through life support of the device at an annual ‘flying rate’ of between 1500 and 1900 hours.

The timeline from Contract signature to delivery in New Zealand will be approximately two years. The simulator will be based at Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) Base Ohakea.
