First C-130 AMP aircraft delivered

6th January 2012 - 17:49 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has announced that the first C-130 to receive the Warner Robins Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) upgrade has been delivered to Little Rock Air Force Base. So far three aircraft have already been upgraded by Boeing, with this delivery marking the first upgrade carried out by Warner Robins.

The C-130 AMP cockpit upgrade will simplify and standardise the multiple C-130 configurations operated by the US Air Force (USAF). It will also ‘reduce annual ownership cost while offering the crews more situational awareness to perform their missions’, Boeing said.

According to Boeing, the aircraft is one of five that will participate in Initial Operational Testing and Evaluation (IOT&E) at Little Rock Air Force Base beginning later this month. The fifth aircraft, also to be upgraded by Warner Robins, will be delivered in February. It will be the fifth aircraft in the IOT&E fleet.
