The US Air Force has taken delivery of a virtual avionics procedure trainer (VAPT) from Rockwell Collins to train Iraqi Coalition Force pilots flying King Air aircraft for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

The VAPT is based on Rockwell’s advanced CORETM simulation architecture and features a modular, expandable and configurable technology, PC-based hardware and Rockwell rehosted avionics software.

The features simplify future upgrades without the need for expensive hardware modifications and allow the VAPT to support multiple aircraft platforms or software configurations.

A team of combat air advisors is providing pilot and mission system operator training to the Iraqi Air Force on newly acquired King ISR aircraft and converting their knowledge of the older MiG jet technology to the systems used on the King Air.

Rockwell Collins simulation and training solutions vice president and general manager Ken Schreder said the trainer would enable Iraqi pilots to train on the latest avionics equipment in a classroom environment to better prepare them for their flight missions.
