Elbit Systems describes flight training center for Israeli Air Force Future Trainer Aircraft program

FORT WORTH, Texas, 4 Dec. 2012. TOR-Advanced Flight Training, a jointly-owned company of Elbit Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries, won a contract from the Israel Ministry of Defense (IMOD) to establish and operate a flight training center. It falls under the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF's) Future Trainer Aircraft program for the Aermacchi M3461 training aircraft.

With the introduction of the M346I trainer aircraft, more emphasis will be given to ground-based training for the IAF’s flight school cadets, combat pilots, and navigators. Elbit Systems' ground training center will include cutting-edge trainers and simulators to provide the experience of real flight.

Cadet pilots and navigators will gain skills that range from basic familiarity with the aircraft to the highest level of combat flight competence. Elbit Systems' training aircraft simulators will enable flight school cadets to practice unusual and emergency flight procedures, and at a more advanced level, to simulate complex combat scenarios acting as solo pilots or as part of a formation, says a representative.

The ground-based flight training center is expected to begin operation in mid-2014.     

Cadets, having completed ground-based training, will proceed to airborne training with Elbit Systems' Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVATM), which enables the trainee to gain experience operating advanced systems, such as radar, optical sensors, early warning systems, and virtual weapons.

Elbit Systems offers operational and tactical, virtual, and embedded trainers and simulators to air forces worldwide. Its modular, flexible training solutions for airborne systems include computer-based trainers, partial task trainers, full mission trainers, and complete training centers that comprise mission planning systems, simulators, and debriefing systems. Based on data link technologies incorporated into navigation and display systems, the system generates virtual sensors and systems as well as multiple types of threats, airborne and ground.
