HC/MC-130J Ground Trainer


Recommended Posts

AC-130J #1 that went inverted while in OTE at Eglin (damaged beyond repair)…now ground trainer at Kirtland.


Congrats to our teammates in the Simulators Division on the recent successful delivery of an Enhanced Fuselage Training Device to the 58th Special Operations Wing at Kirtland Air Force Base!

Working in partnership with various stakeholders, to include Lockheed Martin and Air Force Special Operations Command, the division led an effort to convert an operational MC-130J aircraft – which had sustained damage – to a training device that will provide realistic simulation capabilities for approximately 200 MC-130J and HC-130J loadmasters and special mission aviators annually.

The device frees up operational aircraft from being used for static ground training and overall provides a training capability that was not previously available. This is just another example of the Simulators Division providing our warfighters with the enhanced training tools they need to fight and win!
