Tampa, Florida (28 April, 2016) – Aero Simulation Inc (ASI) is pleased to announce its latest major contract award, the C-2A Operational Flight Trainer (OFT), Device 2F168 Service Life Extension Program. Awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, the $13M program directly supports training for the Fleet Replacement Squadron (VAW-120) and the East Coast and West Coast Fleet Logistics Support squadrons (VRC-30 and VRC-40). The two (2) C-2A OFTs are located at Naval Station Norfolk, VA and Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego, CA.

The program requires the replacement of the current Image Generator and databases with Rockwell Collins products which are common to our E-2D and E-2C devices, replacement of the display system, Host Computer, Instructor Station, Weather Radar System, Digital Control Loaders, and Input/Output System. ASI will also be supplying a new Flight Model which will greatly enhance the training fidelity for the pilots who are essential to carrying supplies, mail, and passengers to U.S. Navy aircraft carriers around the world.

“ASI is extremely pleased to continue our support of the C-2 and E-2 communities.” said Mr. Russ Shepard, ASI’s Director of Business Development. “ASI has provided support for the C-2 and E-2 flight training devices for both the United States Navy and our Foreign Military allies since 2000 and we look forward to continuing this tradition. We welcome the continued confidence of the Government in ASI’s ability to perform these important trainer upgrades. We look forward to our development and delivery of these systems to the Fleet.”
