Lockheed will provide the US Air Force with pilot training devices for its F-22 Raptor fighter jets.

Under the multiyear, $77.6m contract the defence supplier will provide the training devices in four simulated cockpit configurations.

The F-22 is a fifth-generation fighter capable of simultaneously conducting air-to-air and air-to-ground combat missions.

Presently, two squadrons of F-22s are assigned to Air Combat Command’s 1st Fighter Wing at Langley Airbase and two squadrons to the 3rd Wing at Elmendorf Air Base.

Training for the Raptors take place at the Tyndall Air Base in Florida, while operational testing is conducted at airbases at California and Nevada.
