The parent company of Bell Helicopter has formed TRU Simulation + Training to provide pilot and flight crew training to the military and commercial markets. TRU was formed by combining two recent Textron acquisitions–Mechtronix, located in Montreal, Quebec, and Opinicus, located in Lutz, Fla.—with a portion of Textron Systems unit AAI Logistics of Goose Creek, S.C. Annual revenue for the new business is expected to exceed $100 million. TRU CEO James Takats said the unit will help Textron become “a major force” in the rapidly growing training and simulation business.
