Elbit Systems has inaugurated its multi-cockpit mission training centre (MTC) for the Colombian Air Force.

The interconnected MTC allows fighter pilots, squadrons and ground crew to undergo realistic simulated battlefield training.

The training involves a variety of aircraft systems, mission scenarios and a computer-generated forces (CGF) solution to allow friendly and enemy forces to participate simultaneously.

Elbit Systems Aerospace Division general manager Yoram Shmuely said: “The MTC is yet another example of Elbit Systems’ technological leadership in the training and simulation field and it attests to the growing demand for all-inclusive interconnected simulation platforms that enhance the quality of training while reducing operational costs.”

The Colombian Air Force MTC uses Elbit’s technologies and ‘train as you fight’ concept to allow pilots, squadrons and ground controllers to conduct realistic, up-to-date training exercises and save actual flight hours.

“The MTC has been designed to provide basic and emergency training or advanced mission-oriented training with up to 24 trainees.”
