L-3 Communications announced today that its Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) business has received an award from BAE Systems to develop the Hawk Oman Training System (HOTS).

The training system, which is planned to achieve its ready-for-training milestone during the first quarter of 2017, will prepare Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) pilots to operate BAE Systems’ Hawk MK166 Advanced Jet Trainer aircraft.

“L-3 is very pleased that our growing relationship with BAE Systems has enabled us to add another world-class aircraft to the portfolio of platforms we support with advanced training solutions,” said Lenny Genna, president of L-3 Link. “We look forward to developing and delivering training equipment that will enable Royal Air Force of Oman pilots to sharpen their basic fighter jet skills.”
