Lockheed Martin deliver F-35 full mission simulators

Lockheed Martin has delivered F-35 Full Mission Simulators (FMS) to the Israeli, Italian, Japanese and Norwegian Air Forces – the first-ever deliveries to international F-35 operators.

The simulators provide a key component of the pilot training capability at F-35 operating bases in the four countries, where they will facilitate pilot qualification training, continuation training and mission rehearsal training.

The US-based F-35 training given to these nations will provide the foundation for developing their own independent training capabilities.

Dozens of international pilots and maintainers have been trained in the US, while some of their instructor cadre have been trained in-country by Lockheed Martin’s Global Mobile Training Team.

Lockheed Martin continues to support the F-35 maintenance training in Israel, Italy, Japan and Norway, as all of these countries have or are scheduled to receive courseware, curriculum and an Aircraft Systems Maintenance Trainer.

As the F-35 programme prepares for full-rate production, pilot and maintenance trainers will be delivered to additional international F-35 customers beginning in 2018.

Colleen Arthur, vice president of F-35 Training at Lockheed Martin said: “Lockheed Martin fully supports these customers and their F-35 training goals – we’re here to enable their success.

“Lockheed Martin has unparalleled experience and expertise in leading day-to-day F-35 training operations and we look forward to our continued partnerships with these important allies as they build their respective training programmes.”
