Northrop Grumman has delivered the first set of instructional courseware for F-35 pilots and maintainers on schedule.

The material includes presentation material for classroom flying and maintenance instructors, and self-study materials. “Training systems courseware provides the fundamental framework for teaching pilots and aircraft maintainers how to prepare for the F-35 mission or maintenance scenarios they’re most likely to encounter,” explained Mark Tucker, vice president of tactical systems and F-35 program manager for Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector, in a release. “The goal is for every pilot and every maintainer to reach the same level of knowledge about the jet, regardless of where they started.”

The courseware supports the current Block 0.5 software load in the aircraft, and subsequent deliveries will reflect more advanced software loads and block versions as they are applied to the aircraft.
