Under the contract, the ITC will consist of a weapon systems trainer, pilot and co-pilot station, loadmaster station and related courseware and support equipment. A second weapon system trainer will be installed at McChord Air Force Base, Washington, in the third quarter of 2012 and a third ITC will go to a new C-17 training site in early 2013.
"Wright-Patterson is set to receive its first of eight C-17s next year and McChord has 54," Mark McGraw, Boeing vice president for Training Systems & Services, said in a an official release.
The ITCs support pilot and co-pilot instruction in flight operations, mission planning and emergency procedures through computer-based training, advanced aircraft simulation and other desktop training devices.
