The Rotary-Wing MTC is a networked multi-platform, mission-oriented, helicopter training center that will provide multi-level training for helicopter pilots and aircrews across the customer’s Armed Forces. The new training center will enable realistic simulated tactical training using all of the helicopter’s systems in a wide variety of mission scenarios.
