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 facility.

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 located with the manufacturing line for the C-130J and the LM-100J. This location is easily accessible for domestic and international customers with its proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

"With our experience as the C-130J and LM-100J manufacturer, and decades of training expertise, we're investing to deliver an integrated solution to prepare the next generation of air mobility pilots and aircrews," said Jon Rambeau, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin Training and Logistics Solutions. "As military and commercial customers modernize and expand their fleets, we see an opportunity to offer increased value to our customers through this International Training Center."
