Lockheed Martin  is meeting the increasing global demand for C-130J military and LM-100J commercial flight training with a new International Training Center (ITC) to be located at the corporation’s Marietta, Georgia site.

Featuring academic classroom space and simulator facilities to support the full spectrum of aircrew training, the center will support training needs including initial qualification, refresher courses, instructor qualification and mission training. The center is currently under construction and will open in 2018.

The ITC is co-located with the manufacturing line for the C-130J – the world’s most advanced military tactical airlifter – and the LM-100J, a civil multi-purpose air freighter. This location is easily accessible for domestic and international customers with its proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, which serves more than 60 international cities in 50 countries.

Lockheed Martin has a legacy of C-130 training with nearly 200,000 students trained to date. The International Training Center cements Lockheed Martin’s commitment to equipping pilots and aircrews worldwide with the skills and training to complete the air mobility mission.
