solutions
– “Hard” controls
– “Hard” cabin furniture
– 2D (or multi-2D) flight visual
Representative Cockpit
Trainer
• Actual controls and displays in correct 3D
spatial environment; can approach full flight
simulator quality
• Hybrid Solutions
– Partial controls (only that required to meet training
needs)
– Partial cabin furniture
Flight/Mission
Simulators
• Full spectrum training
– Significantly less cost than live aircraft
– Significantly less risk than live aircraft
Flight/Mission
Simulators
• Full Mission Simulation
Loadmaster/Mission
Trainer
• Initial Loadmaster Training
• Continuation Loadmaster Training

Loadmaster/Mission
Trainer
• Training of Maintenance Staff (Role/AD
Equipment)
• Training of Movements Staff
• Training of Aero Medical Staff
• Training of Paratroop & SAR Techs

Maintenance Trainers
• Basic advantage of legacy conversion is
similarity of major aircraft structure and
systems
• “Baseline” solution is to leave legacy systems
intact but functional using external electrical
and hydraulic power
Maintenance Trainers
• Incorporates training features through
replacement of systems that;
– Function & Maintain per C-130J [example; Gear]
– Maintain per C-130J [example; HUD]
– Represent C-130J [example; Cabin Furniture]

Training Revolution
• Advances in synthetic training provide
comprehensive & integrated training solutions
• Significant reduction in cost and utilization of
operational assets for training tasks
• Solutions extend beyond cockpit environment;
conversion of legacy fuselages is both practical
and effective
• ``Mission
Mission Rehearsal
Rehearsal`` fast becoming a reality
