Elbit Systems has been selected by the Israeli Ministry of Defense to provide and operate flight simulators for the upgraded C-130H and C-130J transport aircraft of the Israeli Air Force (IAF), the company announced on 6 December.

The agreement includes a set up phase of approximately three years and a ten-year operating period.

The company will set up and operate an IAF upgraded C-130H and C-130J training centre, providing two inter-connected flight simulators that enable single and squadron training as well as a ground crews simulator that enables high fidelity training of aircraft maintenance procedures.

Yoram Shmuely, general manager of Elbit Systems Aerospace Division, said: ‘We are proud to have been selected by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, especially since it comes on the heels of the successful completion of the upgrade programme of the IAF's C-130H aircraft fleet.

‘This is yet another example of Elbit Systems' technological and operational leadership in the training and simulation field and attests to the growing demand in many countries for all-inclusive interconnected simulation platforms,  that enhance the quality of training while reducing flight hours.’
