Raytheon Company is offering an integrated, next-generation training solution for the U.S. Air Force’s Advanced Pilot Training competition. Raytheon, one of the world’s preeminent training and avionics companies, is the prime contractor, with principal partners Finmeccanica (FNC IM; SIFI.MI) CAE USA and Honeywell Aerospace.

“The success of our nation’s future pilots depends on a comprehensive trainer to prepare them to take full advantage of the capabilities unique to advanced 4th and 5th generation fighters,” said Rick Yuse, president of Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems. “Our affordable, low risk, open systems solution combines a proven aircraft with a suite of fully integrated training technologies. Our team is best positioned to bring the essential experience, capabilities and core competencies together to meet the United States Air Force’s mission requirements.”

Nearly 45,000 pilots and crew have earned their wings on the training systems designed, developed and fielded by this Raytheon led-team. This solution combines the T-100, an advanced variant of the Aermacchi M-346, with a leading-edge Ground Based Training System.

"The T-100 offers dynamic kinetic performance, while also delivering an embedded, tactical training system that immerses pilots in realistic mission scenarios,” said Filippo Bagnato, managing director of Finmeccanica Aircraft Division. “The M-346, the basis for the T-100, is already operational and preparing pilots around the world for the challenges of today’s complex fighter platforms.”

CAE USA designs and develops some of the world’s most sophisticated, simulation-based training systems for lead-in fighter trainer aircraft.

“Our system will prepare Air Force pilots to safely and efficiently fly the most advanced fighter aircraft,” said Gene Colabatistto, group president Defense & Security, CAE. “Our integrated simulation technologies will play an increasingly critical role in ensuring sophisticated, safe, cost-effective training for the United States Air Force."

Honeywell Aerospace will provide twin, F124 turbofan engines to power the T-100 via the International Turbine Engine Company (ITEC) joint venture. With more than 800,000 operating hours across the entire F124/F125 turbofan engine family to date, the F124 delivers best-in-class thrust-to-weight ratio, proven reliability and enhanced efficiency.

“Honeywell’s F124 turbofan engine ensures training and light combat aircraft have the best power, easiest maintenance, flexibility and low life-cycle cost to support all types and roles of missions,” said Carey Smith, president, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. “The F124 engine reduces pilot workload with new automation features that allow a pilot to focus on flying the aircraft for its mission.”
