India’s Mahindra Defence Systems has started a C-130J Super Hercules simulator training centre at the Air Force (IAF) station in Hindon outside Delhi.

The facility offers training with a full motion simulator to the crew that operate the C-130J special operations aircraft acquired from Lockheed Martin in 2011.

“The technology and configuration and configuration of the simulator enable trainee aircrew to perform precision low-level flying, airdrops, disaster relief, HADR Operations and landing in blackout conditions status with zero Flight Time,” an air force spokesperson said.

 “We believe this will help deliver the objectives of the Government of India and the Indian Air Force of building indigenous military capabilities.” said S.P. Shukla, group president, aerospace & defence sector, and chairman, Mahindra Defence Systems said in a statement Wednesday.

 Mahindra Defence Systems, in its endeavor to support the Make in India initiative of the Government of India, is consistently building the ecosystem through similar programs towards a mission ready IAF,” S.P Shukla added.

The centre will hone the tactical and operational skills of the C-130J pilots, combat system operators and loadmasters to conduct special operations.
