Lockheed Martin Unveils Advanced Pilot Training Solution

Lockheed Martin has confirmed that it will offer the T-50A in the U.S. Air Force’s Advanced Pilot Training (APT) competition.

The T-50A was developed jointly by Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to replace the T-38 and train pilots to fly 5th Generation aircraft.

“The T-50A is production ready now. It is the only offering that meets all of the APT requirements and can deliver those capabilities on schedule,” said Rob Weiss, executive vice president and general manager, Lockheed Martin Advanced Development Programs (Skunk Works). “We carefully studied a clean-sheet option for the [Advanced Pilot Training] competition and determined that it posed excessive risk to the APT cost and schedule requirements.”

Lockheed Martin’s accompanying T-50A Ground-Based Training System (GBTS) applies lessons-learned from decades of training with leading-edge technologies to deliver an advanced pilot training solution.

Lockheed Martin has selected the company’s Greenville Operations facility in Greenville, South Carolina, as the preferred Final Assembly and Checkout (FACO) site for the T-50A.
