U.S. Air Force Awards C-5 Program Training Contract

Nearly $6 Million To Lockheed Martin For Training In Seven Locations

The U.S. Air Force has awarded a $5.8 million one-year contract from FlightSafety Services Corporation to manage C-5 aircrew training at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, and provide logistical support for six other training locations to Lockheed Martin. The contract includes four one-year options that, if exercised, would total $30 million.

The C-5 Aircrew Training System (ATS) program provides total training support for all C-5 pilots, flight engineers, loadmasters and maintenance engine run personnel. In addition to managing the C-5 Training Systems Support Center and formal training unit at Lackland Air Force Base, Lockheed Martin will provide logistical training support at Dover Air Force Base, DE; Travis Air Force Base, CA; Martinsburg Air National Guard Base, WV; Memphis Air National Guard Base, TN; Stewart Air National Guard Base, NY; and Westover Air Reserve Base, MA.

"Lockheed Martin is proud to provide a robust training program to prepare C-5 aircrews for their critical humanitarian and operational missions," said Jim Weitzel, vice president of training and engineering services in Lockheed Martin's Global Training and Logistics business. "Training is personalized to ensure each student has the skills needed to engage in missions more quickly and affordably."

The scope of work includes managing hardware, software and courseware, maintaining simulator certifications to Air Force specifications and overseeing the operations of the training management system.
