Boeing AMPs up system trainer

  • 16-Sep-2009 04:49 EDT

Boeing is scheduled to deliver a suite of trainers over the next several years to support the AMP training program at Little Rock.

Boeing has delivered the U.S. Air Force's first simulator for the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) to Little Rock Air Force Base. It is a full-motion, high-fidelity simulator that is essential in training USAF aircrews to fly the AMP-modified aircraft in an operational environment. The training device uses the same software as the C-130 AMP aircraft, which will make it easier for the USAF to keep the simulator current with the aircraft. Any future modifications can be made to the aircraft and the training devices at the same time, allowing aircrews to train on any new capability in the simulator before flying it in the aircraft. Three C-130 AMP aircraft have completed initial flight testing and are undergoing additional evaluation flights with the USAF before the AMP upgrade kits are installed on the fleet. Boeing partnered with CAE USA to integrate the new AMP cockpit into the simulator and to perform similar modifications for other training devices in the suite.
