In a formal handover event attended by US Ambassador to Slovakia Theodore Sedgwick and dignitaries of the Slovak Government and Slovak Air Force, Pennsylvania-based Fidelity Technologies Corporation completed factory acceptance testing of the G222 (C-27A) Fuselage Load Trainer (FLT) used in support of training the Afghan National Army Air Corps (ANAAC). Fidelity cooperated, among others, with Letecké opravovne Trenčín a.s. (LOTN) for the US Army Programme Executive Office Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
The ceremony represents the culmination of two years of highly collaborative work between the companies from the United States and Slovakia with US Army supervision, a company press release stated. The FLT represents the last device in a multi-platform training systems contract in support of training the Afghan forces as part of the NATO International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) efforts. The FLT is a highly advanced training device combining a hands-on reconfigurable training platform with simulation tools. Capable of replicating aircraft configurations for troop transportation, ambulatory and medical evacuation, as well as cargo logistics operations, the FLT provides a one-of-a-kind training experience for aircrews and load masters.
