When you can fly the skies with a single flight simulator
The Air Force is planning to begin deploying its Air Force One simulator, which is intended for use in emergency situations, to the public next year.
The Air Force has previously announced plans to deploy a similar aircraft simulator, but the Air Force said it would have to first receive a $100 million contract from Boeing.
The Air Corps said it was still working out the details of that contract.
We’re working with Boeing on the contract to integrate the AirForceOne simulator in a training scenario and in a contingency scenario,” the Air Corps’ Office of Aviation and Space said in a statement.
While the Air Forces have previously announced a plan to expand their simulator’s use to the battlefield, the program has been a long time in the making.
In 2012, the Air Defense Command said the AirMate 2 simulator would be deployed to Afghanistan, but that deployment was never completed.
In 2017, the Army said the ArmyMate 3 aircraft simulator would begin being used in Afghanistan in 2017, but no plans were announced.
“The AirForce will use the simulator in conjunction with other flight simulators that will be integrated into the existing training environment.” “
The AirMates, as well as the aircraft simulators, are designed for the purpose of conducting training simulations in the air and in space,” the Pentagon said at the time.
“The AirForce will use the simulator in conjunction with other flight simulators that will be integrated into the existing training environment.”
The Pentagon also said that, “the AirMATE 2 aircraft simulator will be fully operational by the middle of 2018.”
The AirMators would be the first of its kind in the world, and the Air Air Force’s Air Mobility Command has said that the AirMechanics Simulator would be ready for use by 2019.
