Lockheed Submits Proposal For AF Aircrew Training System

Lockheed Martin Corp. has answered a request for proposal to develop a KC-46 Aircrew Training System for the Air Force, the company announced Thursday.

The Bethesda, Md.-based firm said the trainer would help prepare pilots, boom operators and additional on-board personnel for air fueling, cargo transport and medical evacuation.

Additional features would include training devices, courseware, instructors and logistics support.

The proposal is currently under review and the company expects to deploy a system by 2016.

In early May, the company announced it won a $150 million Air Force contract for C-130J training systems.
