L-3 Will Build F-22 Full Mission Trainers

U.S. Air Force Contract Worth Over $39 Million

L-3 Link Simulation & Training has been awarded $39.2 million in production contracts from The Boeing Company to build 12 F-22 Full Mission Trainers (FMTs). In announcing the contract Monday, Boeing said it has developed and implemented the overall F-22 Training System, which includes L-3's high-fidelity F-22 FMTs that enable pilots to practice operating this fifth-generation fighter aircraft.

F-22 FMTs are used to reinforce air-to-air and air-to-ground warfighting skills, including undertaking simulated missions against advanced integrated radar networks and dense surface-to-air missile environments. The FMTs are integrated into the U.S. Air Force's Distributed Mission Operations training network, allowing F-22 pilots to train and conduct missions with other aircrews flying different simulated aircraft at locations throughout the world.

"Since 2003, F-22 Full Mission Trainers have played a vital role in maintaining the mission readiness of pilots," said Bob Birmingham, president of L-3 Link. "These F-22 pilot training devices - which are the product of extremely successful teaming between L-3 Link, The Boeing Company and Lockheed Martin - provide the final building block to train and reinforce pilot warfighting skills."

L-3 Link has delivered nine F-22 FMTs, 23 F-22 Weapons Tactics Trainers and five F-22 Egress Procedures Trainers in support of the F-22 Training System since 2003.
