F-16 Flight Simulators-Helping Pilots Stay Sharp
As with any job, it is vital for employees to stay up- to- date with what is new in their field. The same is for pilots who are in the Air Force.
There are going to be a new breed of flight simulators that are very much needed by fighter pilots. Flight simulators are important for these fighter pilots because it is their way of keeping up with the new technology and improving their skills in the cockpit. With these flight simulators, pilots are able to ensure their own safety as well as others.
South Korea is in the process of developing a dozen of their own F-16 flight simulator by 2014 in an effort to aid pilots keep up with their fighter upgrades and conduct sustainable flight training in the mist of high oil prices.
The Defence Acquisition Program Administration awarded Korea’s only aircraft maker, Aerospace Industries, a-130 billion dollar contract to expand and update flight simulators. It was also done for them to provide unit training strategies for F-16 and KF-16 pilots, in addition to upgrading simulation systems.
These new systems will assist pilots to train and sharpen their skills in tactical flight, take-off and landing, as well as emergency landings. Production is said to start after the development of the F-16 flight simulators and when it is completed, sometime during November 2014.
The advancements and developments of these simulators are thought of, to help solve some of the issues which the Air Force is facing. Hopefully, the upgrade of simulators will resolve the problem of not having enough training for pilots, which is a result of the high oil prices. There are great chances that they will support the pilot’s effort in improving their aircraft operational skills and capabilities, which are needed to fly their planes with expertise.
It is important that pilots get these new F-16 flight simulators in order for them to do their job the best way possible.
