Lockheed Martin to design F-35 simulation and training at Lemoore NAS

U.S. Navy air combat experts are expanding simulation and training activities for the F-35C carrier-based joint strike fighter to help give F-35 pilots and flight crews a realistic training experience at the most economical cost possible.

U.S. Navy air combat experts are expanding simulation and training activities for the F-35C carrier-based joint strike fighter to help give F-35 pilots and flight crews a realistic training experience at the most economical cost possible. Over the next three years, Navy Pacific Fleet F-35C pilots will gain access to a state-of-the-art flight simulation facility at Lemoore Naval Air Station in Central California that will involve training tasks ranging from basic flight skills to team-based mission rehearsal that will mimic challenging combat conditions. Officials of the Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., announced a $20.8 million order to the Lockheed Martin Corp. Aeronautics segment in Fort Worth, Texas, to build a sophisticated F-35C simulation and training facility at Lemoore. Through early 2019, Lockheed Martin engineers will deliver, install, configure, and stand up an F-35C Training Infrastructure System (TIS) and Pilot Fitting Facility at Lemoore.
