Helping Australia's Future Pilots Take Flight
Team 21, comprised of Lockheed Martin, Pilatus Aircraft and Hawker Pacific, is now formally on contract with the Australian Department of Defence to deliver the AIR 5428 Pilot Training System.
Under this 7-year program, which has performance-based options for up to 25 years valued at more than AU$1.2 billion, Lockheed Martin will lead the delivery of an integrated solution tailored for all future pilots for the Royal Australian Air Force, Royal Australian Navy and the Australian Army.
It takes a next-generation training system to train the next generation of pilots. Here’s a quick look at the innovative technologies Team 21 will use to help Australia’s future pilots take flight.
