The center incorporates a ''Mission Training'' system that allows fighter pilots to fly operational and tactical missions
Elbit Systems announced today that the Mission Training Center (MTC) for the Israeli Air Force's (IAF) pilots of F-16C/D and F-16I fighter aircraft is now operational and currently being used by the IAF.
The MTC, operating through a PFI (Private Financing Initiative) concept, successfully completed the development phase and is now operational, with Elbit Systems performing the instruction, operation and maintenance services.
The new operational MTC marks a significant breakthrough in the operational training sector. The system enables training in various mission scenarios in different theaters with the relevant threat environment for each theater. The MTC brings an advanced training capability that was not available to the IAF in the past.
