The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has signed a contract worth A$1.2 billion ($880 million) with Lockheed Martin to provide a new Pilot Training System as part of Project Air 5428.

The contract will see the Lockheed Martin-led team – called Team 21 - deliver 49 Pilatus PC-21 aircraft, seven simulators, a classroom for students, updated courseware and support them for an initial seven-year term.

It is understood that 22 of the training aircraft will go to Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base East Sale, Victoria, already home to the RAAF’s Central Flying School.

The programme will provide training for RAAF pilots
