Adacel Teams Up with CAE for Australia’s F-AMTS Program

Adacel Joins Forces with CAE-led Team AUStringer for Australia’s Future Air Mission Training System (F-AMTS), Program AIR 5428 Phase 3 

Adacel, a global pacesetter in air traffic control training and simulation solutions, has announced its alliance with the CAE-led Team AUStringer. This strategic partnership responds to the Commonwealth of Australia’s Project AIR 5428 Phase 3, Future Air Mission Training System (F-AMTS)

Stationed in Melbourne, Australia, Adacel will contribute to the Royal Australian Air Force’s Future Air Mission Training System (F-AMTS) as part of Team AUStringer. Their collaboration will start on 15 August 2023. 

What is the Future Air Mission Training System (F-AMTS)? 

The Future Air Mission Training System (F-AMTS), initiated by the Commonwealth of Australia, will modernize and enhance the air training capabilities of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF).

The F-AMTS program aims to provide a comprehensive training system that can support the training needs of the RAAF’s aircrew for the next 25 years.

The program is divided into three phases. Phase 3 is the current focus. This phase aims to develop a new training system that can support the training of pilots, air combat officers, and air warfare instructors across multiple platforms.

The F-AMTS Phase 3 program will deliver a range of advanced training capabilities. These include simulators, computer-based training systems, and other training aids. The program will also support the development of new training courses and curricula. They will also maintain and support the training system.

This program is a significant investment by the Commonwealth of Australia in the future of its air training capabilities, with $500 million allotted for procurement in the Future Air Mission Training System (Air 5428 Phase 3).
