CANBERRA, Australia, Feb. 26, 2015by Lockheed Martin


The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has awarded Lockheed Martin Australia a contract to supply a modern C-130J-30 Virtual Maintenance Trainer and a Multi-Function Training Aid (MFTA) to support maintenance and aircrew training at RAAF Base Richmond.

Through this major upgrade, the RAAF will have a standardised curriculum tailored for its operations and based on decades of C-130 training innovation by Lockheed Martin.

“Delivering these training technologies to the RAAF represents Lockheed Martin’s continued commitment to supporting the RAAF air mobility mission,” said Raydon Gates, Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Australia & New Zealand. “These capabilities, supported by a network of training services and products across Lockheed Martin’s aircrew training programs, enable the most effective training for the next generation of pilots and maintainers.”  

Under the maintenance training contract, Lockheed Martin Australia together with Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training in Orlando, Florida, will update two classrooms, providing a modern electronic learning environment. The new classrooms will feature high resolution desktop maintenance trainers paired with computer-based training courseware for a realistic, integrated simulation offering. Further support will add two developer stations to enable RAAF C-130J-30 training staff to modify and update the training courseware through the aircraft lifecycle. 

In addition, the delivery of Lockheed Martin’s MFTA will provide innovative, aircraft-based simulation to aid the instructors and students. Powered by Prepar3D® simulation software, the MFTA reduces demand on operational aircraft while providing a highly realistic simulation environment for more affordable training. 

Headquartered in Canberra, Lockheed Martin Australia is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation. The company employs more than 1,000 people in Australia and New Zealand working on a wide range of major programmes spanning the aerospace, defence and civil sectors.
