  5. 5. Technical and Pilot Training Technical Training Besides actually executing maintenance, Daedalus provides training for a wide range of trades and aircraft platform types or even support elements like training on GSE operation and maintenance. Training can either be performed at our facilities in The Netherlands or at the customer location incountry. Daedalus can also provide specific technician training on-the-job training (OJT) for (type) trained personnel in order to transfer knowledge and develop capability within the customer organization or any local support industry. In most cases these OJTs will be combined with actual execution of the MRO projects themselves. This concept of knowledge transfer and capability development has already successfully been applied in various countries, where personnel of the local aviation support industry or the air force customer themself has been trained on-the-job during the execution of a (complex) maintenance or upgrade programs. During these type of projects Daedalus gradually turns over the work to the customer or partner by initially performing the work themselves while the trainees looks over our shoulder, then perform the work together and finally have the customer/partner do follow-on work by themselves while Daedalus specialists watch over their shoulder. We believe in building honest and solid relationship rather than trying to keep everyuthing to ourselves. Pilot Training Besides technical training Daedalus support, Daedalus offers (advanced) pilot training for both fixed and rotary wing pilots in high detail similators as well as live flying. Rotary wing crew training is provided through our HELIOS Flight Training Center, of which is conveniently located adjacent to one of the Royal Netherlands Air Force Airbases. HELIOS offers courses for advanced helicopter operations, like NVG flying, Medical Evacuation, Fire-fighting and more for both pilots and supporting crew members like hoist operators, load masters and observers. If needed, depending on student entry level, CPL and PPL training can be provided as well. Fixed wing training is provided in close coordination with dedicated partners for both similator based training as well as live flying training. Although CPL and PPL can be provided we focus on advanced training like flight testing and upset recovery training.

  7. 7. Sales Support Air Force surplus equipment When Air Forces decide to sell their surplus equipment, this usually involves a lot of work besides just making the sale, especially when this pertains aircraft. Daedalus has an extensive knowledge of the military aviation market, has experience with buying and selling equipment (including aircraft) and is able to provide a solution for those Air Forces that are not equipped to support the sales effort. In most cases Air Forces aren’t even equipped with a sales organization nor have any experience in this field. Therefore we strongly believe that the combination of our large worldwide military aviation network and our MRO capabilities provide for a total solution to support Air Forces in selling their surplus equipment in the most effective and efficient way. Daedalus offers the following sales support:  Assist in finding the right customer  Provide full program management  Prepare aircraft or other equipment for transfer  (de)modification  perform any open or deferred maintenance  Assist in putting together a spare part support package  Assist in the setup and management of Country Specific Technical Orders (CSTOs)  Assist in transferring knowledge to the new customer  Provide training for new customers  Provide (long term) engineering support  Act as a liaison between seller and buyer as part of a support package  Support interested customers in the procurement process Daedalus' goal is to relieve any Air Force that desires to sell their surplus equipment from as much excessive burden as possible in order for them to maintain focussed on their primary tasks: operational readiness. Furthermore for every sale we will create a business case in such a way that our cost are reimbursed through the sale while maintaining the minimum price that the “selling” Air Force wishes to receive. This will creat a triple-win situation: the “selling” Air Force will be able to make a quick sale in “as is, where is” condition, the “buying” Air Force (or any other governemental entity) will receive full support from the start and is ensured of the most costeffective deal, whereas we will be enabled to provide our full portfolio of service in support of this.
