Boeing has delivered the first simulators for ground-based F-22 Raptor aircraft with an immersive, 360-degree visual environment.
The delivery of Advanced Visual System has improved the realism of ground-based F-22 Raptor training center.
Two simulators were installed, each paired with the Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS), Boeing’s patented display which provides high-resolution imagery for pilots to train with nearly 20/20 acuity.
“Boeing has delivered what are probably the most advanced high definition flight simulators I have experienced, and they are going to let our pilots realize training unlike any they’ve had before”, said Air Force Col. Anthony Genatempo.
“That translates directly into mission readiness”, Genatempo added.
This latest F-22 mission training center delivery is the fourth of five mission training centers ordered by the U.S. Air Force. The fifth will be installed this year. Boeing will upgrade the previously delivered F-22 mission training centers with the CRVS as well.
The F-22 mission training centers also include instructional courseware, software and brief/debrief stations where student pilots can review recordings and data with an instructor.
