Lockheed Martin Canada and L3 MAS are working together in the procurement competition to provide military aircrew training services for the Government of Canada’s Future Aircrew Training Program. Future aircrew training services, explains the government, will include classroom instruction, simulator and flight training, as well as numerous on-site support activities.

The government continues to explain the program will include delivery of pilot training, as well as aircrew training for air combat systems officers and airborne electronic sensor operators currently being performed in-house by the Royal Canadian Air Force.

In 2016, industry was advised of the new scope of this procurement process through a Letter of Interest. After engaging with 84 companies earlier this year to determine its needs, Canada in December 2018 established a list of Qualified Suppliers with an ability to meet the government’s needs, including (in alphabetical order): Airbus Defence and Space, Babcock Canada Inc., BAE Systems, Leonardo Canada, Lockheed Martin Canada Inc., and SkyAlyne Canada Limited Partnership.

“Lockheed Martin is a world leader in providing leading-edge full schoolhouse aircrew training solutions, and we look forward to working with the Government of Canada to offer the right solution for Canada’s next generation of aircrew,” said Charles Bouchard, chief executive, Lockheed Martin Canada.
 
As an In-Service Support (ISS) integrator for the RCAF, L3 MAS provides fleet management, logistics and maintenance capabilities in support of training assets. “L3 MAS is delighted to team with Lockheed Martin Canada to help deliver an advanced, world-class, integrated training system to future generations of RCAF aircrew,” said Jacques Comtois, vice president and general manager of L3 MAS.
