Boeing is providing the simulation capability to train F-15 pilots and system operators in high-fidelity training devices.

Boeing is supplying F-15 Mission Training Center (MTC) simulation services to support USAF Air Combat Command plus the Pacific Air Forces Command and Air Force in Europe Command. 

Under a $128.84 million contract by the US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Boeing ‘will provide all personnel, equipment, supplies, transportation, tools, materials, supervision and other items to perform all MTC services’, the DoD announced on 28 June. 

These services will provide simulation capability to train F-15 pilots and system operators in high-fidelity training devices. 

Work will be performed in four US locations, as well as Kadena Air Base in Japan and RAF Lakenheath in the UK, for completion by 31 December 2021.

Boeing is already upgrading USAF F-15C and F-15E MTCs with the Suite 9.1 Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System.
