Israel's Elbit Systems has supplied an interconnected multi-cockpit mission training centre to an undisclosed customer in Latin America.

The facility has been built to cater to the latest simulation requirements and training concepts.

Fighter pilots, ground controllers and operators of a wide variety of aircraft systems will be offered complex tactical training at the facility.

"By implementing our SkyBreaker proven, cutting- edge technologies and 'train as you fight' concept in the mission training centre, we enable pilots to conduct realistic, up-to-date training exercises, bringing them to the forefront of flight simulation."

The training will be offered in an advanced simulation arena, along with dozens of friendly and enemy computer generated forces (CGFs).

Elbit Systems aerospace division general manager Yoram Shmuely said: "The features of the mission training center simulator are based on Elbit Systems' SkyBreaker, a market-leading training solution.

The software's open-architecture enables the end user to add future upgrades as avionics systems evolve, while its robust cockpit roll-in-roll-out (RIRO) design allows comfortable future platform expansion, Elbit said.

Designed to allow pilots to train in real mission oriented scenarios, the centre can be used for basic and emergency training, as well as advanced mission oriented training.

The training centre replaces expensive actual flight hours and allows up to 24 trainees to train a 'real' mission together.

Elbit Systems' personnel together with the customer operational staff will operate the training centre, which includes a turnkey solution.
