Bell Boeing Delivers Osprey Flight Training Simulators to US Marine Corps; Randy Deidrick Comments

021012-M-XXXXG-001Bell Boeing has delivered two MV-22 Osprey flight training simulators to the U.S. Marine Corps' HMX-1 presidential airlift squadron.

The simulators have been installed at the squadron's Quantico, Virginia-based headquarters, where aircrews will rehearse operations in a virtual setting, Boeing said Tuesday.

Randy Deidrick, director of Boeing's tactical training systems, said the training device is designed to support the development of skills and knowledge HMX-1 Marine pilots need to operate the MV-22 Osprey.

Bell Boeing is also upgrading the Marine Corps' V-22 maintenance training devices to the new aircraft configuration.

The V-22 aircraft supports presidential travel carrying material and support personnel passengers.

Bell Boeing is a strategic alliance between Bell Helicopter Textron and Boeing.
