F-35 courseware delivered

Northrop Grumman has delivered the first set of instructional materials needed to train pilots and aircraft maintainers for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. It was delivered to the Lockheed Martin F-35 Integrated Training Center, which will open this summer at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Called courseware, the electronic materials include all of the presentation materials that classroom instructors will use to teach pilots how to fly the F-35, and maintainers how to repair and support the aircraft. The courseware also includes students' self-study materials and pilot briefing materials used to support F-35 simulator and flight training events. Northrop Grumman is a principal subcontractor for the Lockheed Martin-built plane that will be used by the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and foreign nations. (Source: Globe Newswire, 06/30/10)
