[Avionics Today 09-09-2015] Lockheed Martin is launching a new International Training Center (ITC) for C-130J and LM-100J commercial flight training to meet increasing global demand. The center will be located at the corporation’s Marietta, Ga., site. The ITC is collocated with the manufacturing line for the C-130J — a military tactical airlifter — and the LM-100J, a civil multi-purpose air freighter.

The center will support training needs including initial qualification, refresher courses, instructor qualification and mission training. The center is currently under construction and will open in 2018.
