Boe­ing de­liv­ers C-17 cargo com­part­ment trainer to Royal Aus­tralian Air Force


oe­ing has de­liv­ered a full-scale C-17 Globe­mas­ter III cargo com­part­ment trainer (CCT) to the Royal Aus­tralian Air Force (RAAF), en­sur­ing that RAAF load­mas­ter train­ing can be cost-ef­fec­tively com­pleted in Aus­tralia in­stead of in the United States.

The CCT is a fully func­tional replica of a C-17 fuse­lage in a ded­i­cated fa­cil­ity at RAAF Base Am­ber­ley. It can real­is­ti­cally sim­u­late both day and night op­er­at­ing and load­ing con­di­tions for load­mas­ter, aeromed­i­cal evac­u­a­tion and aeromed­i­cal spe­cial­ist train­ing.

The fa­cil­ity at Am­ber­ley also in­cludes classrooms, load­ing ve­hi­cles, sim­u­lated cargo and other train­ing as­sets. It is the third op­er­a­tional Boe­ing C-17 CCT; the two oth­ers are lo­cated at Al­tus Air Force Base in the United States.
