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.
