The concept of NETS Mission Simulators is to use a generic, easy to fly, low cost, platform with representative systems and sensors to train pilots from different aircraft types on a common, easy to fly, platform. The objective is not to train the student to practice normal or emergency procedures on a specific aircraft type but to train them to manage a variety of different systems and weapons in an operational environment. NETS simulators deliver operational training including:
• Training pilots to work in close cooperation with ground / airborne controllers and other pilots.
• Training pilots Close Air Support operations and air defence tactics using the same hardware and software.
• Training pilots to operate safely at night using Night Vision Goggles without relying on, for example, the phases of the moon and clear skies.
