Textron Airborne Solutions and its ATAC business operate a live-air training company focused on real-world combat situations. Military pilots, ship crews, and ground support forces receive superior training in fighter tactics, carrier strike group defense and air-to-ground strike control. It’s as real – and as thorough – as it gets.
With over 44,000 training flight hours and 20 years of experience, ATAC has pioneered much of what is now standard in the growing tactical airborne training services industry. And now, this legendary training unit – coupled with Textron’s extensive global reach – makes for an incomparable training resource.
Outsourcing airborne training services to Textron Airborne Solutions creates significant cost and operational benefits. These include reduced wear-and-tear on existing combat aircraft, the preservation of combat readiness, significant cost savings per flight hour over organic combat aircraft, and, for military pilots, the ability to focus on blue operations, rather than training support.
