US aerospace firm Lockheed Martin's (NYSE: LMT) Netherlands-based Sim-Industries unit said it has inked an agreement with German carrier Lufthansa's Lufthansa Flight Training unit to provide a new Boeing (NYSE: BA) 777-300 full flight simulator for the airline's pilot training centre.

This marks the second flight training device agreement between Lufthansa Flight Training and Sim-Industries. Earlier this year, Sim-Industries qualified a B737 Flat Panel Trainer at Lufthansa Flight Training's Berlin training centre.
