Re-imagining USAF Training with Prepar3D

Justin “Hasard” Lee recently got an inside look at the U.S. Air Force Detachment 24 Pilot Training Next program at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph. The Pilot Training Next program is part of Air Education and Training Command’s initiative to re-imagine how the Air Force delivers learning to Airmen. Through the use of Prepar3D and commercial available hardware, the Det 24 is creating more effective and efficient pilot training at a lower cost than traditional methods. Hasard Lee is a fighter pilot currently flying the F-35, the United States’ newest 5th Generation stealth fighter. Prior to flying the F-35, he flew

FlightSim Community Survey 2020 Now Online!

From 13-23 November 2020 Navigraph is conducting a FlightSim Community Survey together with several major addon developers and organizations within the flight simulation community. The survey, the largest of its kind, aims to gauge the prevailing flight simulation trends and users’ requests for future development. Like previous years, this survey has an emphasis on the major flight simulators including Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D, but now also includes questions about simulators on mobile devices, combat simulators, and helicopter simulation. This is the largest and most comprehensive flight simulation survey in the world! By participating you are influencing the future of the community. On

FSFlyingSchool PRO 2020 for Prepar3D v5

FSFlyingSchool is an add-on team of artificially intelligent instructors for Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v5. It provides talking instructors to pilots on any flight, in any powered airplane, anywhere in the world. From the moment the flight starts, to the time the pilot walks away, the instructor is monitoring the pilot’s actions and will comment on and advise in hundreds of different areas, from airmanship to taxiing – navigation to weather considerations, and a great deal more. Pilots have been flying with FSFlyingSchool for 14 years, during which time it has won 5 Classic Product Awards from PC Pilot Magazine. Over

Prepar3D Used to Shape Future STEM Leaders

Each year, Lockheed Martin hires thousands of interns to work at sites around the US. During their time here, the interns gain valuable work experience and partner closely with their managers and colleagues to complete challenging tasks that help solve real world problems. This summer, Lockheed Martin welcomed 2,400 summer interns, more than half of whom are working virtually. In addition to gaining real-world experience on projects, interns participate in a design competition project which is designed to challenge engineering skills and bring fellowship and fun to the virtual internship experience. The virtual interns at Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company,
