Elbit Systems and Leonardo’s Aircraft Division completed delivery of M-346 Full Mission Simulators (FMS) and Flight Training Devices (FTD) to the Polish Air Force (PLAF).
These simulators enable PLAF Cadets to gain top quality training and superior mission readiness. Featuring a 360-degree display system, which provides high fidelity Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground mission training experience, the interconnected simulators enable both pilot and formation training in the same facility. The simulators resemble the simulation technology at the core of the M-346 training centre that was previously delivered to the Israeli Air Force.
The simulation and training technologies delivered by Elbit Systems can be implemented as the future simulation infrastructure of the PLAF and thereby enables interconnection of current M-346 simulators with the future PLAF F-16 Mission Training Centre, for combined mission training.
Leonardo and the Armament Inspectorate of the Polish Ministry of National Defence signed a contract to supply four additional M-346 Advanced Jet Trainers (AJT) that will join the PLAF’s existing fleet of eight aircraft by 2020.
