L-3 Link Simulation & Training of Arlington has been awarded a U.S. Air Force contract modification for the F-16 Iraq training program.
 
The contract, from the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, calls for constructing the Iraqi Air Force two F-16 Block 52 weapon tactics trainers, two brief-debrief systems and one mission observation center.
 
This contract modification follows L-3 Link’s November 2012 award to build two F-16 Block 52 full mission trainers for the Iraqi Air Force.
 
“L-3 Link looks forward to providing a comprehensive training system that will enable Iraqi F-16 pilots to enhance their tactical skills over a full range of mission areas,” said Lenny Genna, president of L-3 Link in a news release.
 
The F-16 block 52 full mission trainers under construction will allow pilots to conduct simulated air-to-air and air-to-ground combat exercises. During training exercises, Iraqi F-16 pilots will wear L-3 Link’s simulated joint helmet-mounted cueing system to control sensors and weapons through visual cueing.
 
L-3 Link Simulation & Training provides total training solutions for operators and maintainers across a wide range of military and civil aircraft platforms. More information is available at www.link.com.
