Lockheed Martin has handed over the first F-35 JSF weapons load training device to the F-35 Integrated Training Centre (ITC) at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
Configured to represent all three variants of the F-35, the training device will allow maintenance students to learn how to load weapons and fuel tanks onto the aircraft.
“Designed to be identical to the F-35 aircraft, the weapons load training simulators enable training to take place without removing aircraft from the flight schedule,” Lockheed Martin said in a statement. “As part of F-35 maintainer training, the systems will complement classroom academics and additional hands-on experience.”
The weapons load training device is one of up to five to be delivered to the ITC.
