To Be Used By US Army Flight School XXI
Computer Sciences Corporation and its US Army Flight School XXI
team members announced Monday the addition and integration of the
world's first and only OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter operational
flight training simulators to its growing suite of training devices
in Warrior Hall, located near Fort Rucker, AL.
The FSXXI contract is administered by the Program Executive
Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO-STRI) in
Orlando, FL. With the OH-58D simulator built, Army aviators have
already begun training in the new devices, according to CSC.
"Enhancing our warfighters' readiness is of utmost importance to
the Flight School XXI team," said Austin Yerks, president of CSC's
North American Public Sector Defense Division. "Throughout each
phase of design, development and testing, the focus of the team
remained the same: to provide the best possible training experience
for future combat aviators in the actual aircraft they will
operate. Through the dedication and hard work of all of the team
members, the Kiowa simulators are online to prepare our men and
women for an uncertain and changing battlefield."
Modeled after what CSC calls "the premier scout/attack
helicopter in the world," the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior operational
flight trainer helps the Army send better trained and adept pilots
into the field by providing them with an advanced technology
platform capable of enhancing the overall training effectiveness of
all aspects of the mission.
