Lockheed Martin acquires Netherlands-based simulation company

  • 07-Nov-2011 03:11 EST

Lockheed Martin Corp. has acquired Sim-Industries B.V., a commercial aviation simulation company located in the Netherlands. The combination of Sim-Industries with Lockheed Martin’s military simulation business will provide airlines, civil pilot training centers, and military customers access to training systems that can be provided more quickly and with lower operating costs. Founded in 2004, Sim-Industries develops and manufactures full-motion and fixed-based civil aviation flight simulators for a range of airline customers and independent pilot training centers worldwide. Since building its first simulator in 2006, Sim-Industries has become a leader in single-aisle commercial aircraft simulators for the Boeing 737 and Airbus 320. It is finalizing development and certification of its first twin-aisle simulator for the Airbus 330.
