“Providing solutions that depict realistic environments and conditions that are true to life – ensuring pilots are trained properly and feel confident when they do get in the air – was the basis for the new name, ” said James Takats, president and CEO of TRU Simulation + Training Inc.
TRU Simulation + Training was formed by combining three legacy Textron subsidiaries such as Mechtronix Inc., OPINICUS Corp. and AAI Logistics & Technical Services.
