The RAAF’s first Wedgetail AEW&C Mission Crew training course was completed at Williamtown recently.

The course, conducted by Boeing Defence Australia personnel on contract to the RAAF, saw eight students provided with more than 1200 hours of training in the air battle management (ABM) role.

“Boeing Defence Australia is responsible for training the students in non-tactical areas across all aircraft mission systems, including data links, communications systems and the Multirole Electronically Scanned Array (MESA) radar, to ensure they graduate with the necessary skills,” Todd Barker, Boeing’s Wedgetail AEW&C mission crew lead instructor and course director said.
