Embraer has selected German company Rheinmetall to develop the training system for its developmental KC-390 transport, under a deal potentially worth at least €100 million ($112 million).

Announced by Rheinmetall in April, the framework agreement will see the company provide a full suite of training equipment over a 10-15 year period, which it expects will result in sales worth “well over” €100 million.

Training for cargo handling, procedures and maintenance, plus flight and mission training, will be provided. Rheinmetall will draw upon its experience in providing the cargo hold simulator for the Airbus Defence & Space A400M for the project. @flightglobal.com
