Israel's M-346 training centre complete

2nd December 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Israeli Air Force’s (IAF’s) Ground Based Training System (GBTS) centre for the M-346 Lavi trainer aircraft is now complete. Elbit Systems, team lead for delivering the centre, announced the news on 28 November.

The GBTS centre is being delivered to the IAF by Elbit Systems, Alenia Aermacchi, CAE and Selex ES.

The centre will house operational combat training solutions to enable IAF pilots and weapons systems operators to progress to fourth and fifth generation fighter aircraft, including the F-16, F-15 and F-35.

The GBTS consists of multiple networked simulators that provide a joint flight environment for effective and safe flight training. The highly realistic simulation technology enables trainees to practice unusual and in-flight emergency procedures at an advanced level, and simulate complex combat scenarios, acting as a solo pilot or as part of a formation. 

Elbit Systems’ Embedded Tactical Training System provides live training within the GBTS as well as in the real aircraft. Simulators employ a real-image 360º display system, equipped with simulation models of actual weapons systems and high-fidelity computer generated forces, which together generate a wide range of immersive virtual combat environments.
