Elbit Systems Introduces IMOD Future Trainer Aircraft Program
Elbit Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) have teamed up to establish and operate a new flight training center to train Israeli Air Force pilots with the Aermacchi M3461 training aircraft.
Advanced Flight Training (TOR) is a new ground-based flight training center based in Israel that is expected to begin operation in mid-2014, Elbit said. The center will feature airborne training with the Elbit Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVA) system, which provides training for operating radar optical sensors, early warning systems, virtual weapons training and more.
"Once again, Elbit Systems is honored to play a part in the training of the IAF’s flight school. The selection of this array of flight trainers and simulators for the IAF's new trainer aircraft is yet another vote of confidence in our extensive training and simulation capabilities,” said Alon Afik, vice president for training and simulation at Elbit Systems.
