Lockheed Martin F-35 Training System Wins Modeling, Simulation Awards; Mary Ann Horter, Col. Todd Canterbury Comment

Lockheed-Martin-BlueLockheed Martin has received a recognition from the National Training and Simulation Association for the company’s F-35 Lightning II training system.

The team of Lockheed Martin, U.S. Air Force’s 33rd Fighter Wing and the F-35 joint program office was awarded the 2014 Modeling and Simulation Awards for training pilots and maintainers on the F-35 system, Lockheed Martin said Tuesday.

Mary Ann Horter, vice president of F-35 sustainment support at Lockheed Martin, said the training technology is designed to help F-35 teams “maximize the aircraft’s sensor information and stealth.”

The F-35 Lightning II training program for pilots and crews kicked off in 2013 at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

“We train like we fight to provide the foundation that the United States and our international partners require to take the F-35 into initial operations,” said Col. Todd Canterbury, commander of the Air Force 33rd Fighter Wing.
