RAAF C-17 sim delivered

written by WOFA | November 19, 2009

The RAAF has taken delivery of a full motion training simulator for its four Boeing C-17A Globemaster transports at RAAF Amberley.

The simulator will allow RAAF C-17 crews to be trained in Australia from January rather than having to go to USAF facilities in Hawaii or Oklahoma for initial and currency simulator training, as is currently the case. The simulator will be housed in a new specially built facility adjacent to 36SQN’s headquarters at Amberley.

A maintenance trainer will be delivered next year and a cargo compartment trainer in 2013, completing the RAAF’s C-17 training system.
