U.K. to Sign 50 Million-Pound Order for A400M Training Simulator

Britain is to pay 50 million pounds ($77 million) for a training simulator for the Airbus SAS A400M transport aircraft, Prime Minister David Cameron said.

The simulator, to be located at the Royal Air Force base at Brize Norton, will support 50 jobs at Thales Training & Simulation Ltd. in southeast England, where the systems are designed and built. The Ministry of Defense will sign the contract with Airbus Military at the Farnborough Air Show, which opens today.

Britain has ordered 22 A400M aircraft to replace its fleet of C-130 Hercules, with the first delivery expected to take place in 2014.

“From this government you will see nothing less than an unstinting, unrelenting, unflagging commitment to making Britain the best place in the world for aerospace businesses to invest, design, manufacture and export,” Cameron said in a statement released by his office in London.

Cameron also pledged 3 million pounds of government money for 500 masters-level degree places in aerospace engineering over the next three years. The places will be jointly funded with industry.
