The Lockheed Martin Australia has won a contract for supplying a C-130J-30 Virtual Maintenance Trainer and a Multi-Function Training Aid (MFTA) to support aircrew training of Royal Australian Air Force.
Through this major upgrade, the RAAF will have a standardized curriculum tailored for its operations and based on decades of C-130 training innovation by Lockheed Martin.
Raydon Gates Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Australia and New Zealand said in the company’s press release on Friday, "These capabilities, supported by a network of training services and products across Lockheed Martin's aircrew training programs, enable the most effective training for the next generation of pilots and maintainers".
Under the maintenance training contract, Lockheed Martin Australia together with Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training will update two classrooms, providing a modern electronic learning environment.
The new classrooms will feature high resolution desktop maintenance trainers paired with computer-based training courseware for a realistic, integrated simulation offering. Further support will add two developer stations to enable RAAF C-130J-30 training staff to modify and update the training courseware through the aircraft lifecycle.
In addition, the delivery of Lockheed Martin's MFTA will provide innovative, aircraft-based simulation to aid the instructors and students. The MFTA, powered by Prepar3D simulation software, reduces demand on operational aircraft while providing a highly realistic simulation environment for more affordable training.
