This project consisted of constructing a two-story, 43,000-square-foot, Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Simulator complex for the F-35B V-STOL aircraft. It uses applied instruction and realistic training scenarios to train Marine aviators in take-off and landings; basic, precision, formation and night flying; instrumentation, navigation and air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons. The facility houses six permanent F-35B Simulators; a Deployable Mission Rehearsal Training (DMRT) area for six additional portable JSF simulators; and briefing/debriefing rooms, mission planning rooms, classrooms, administrative and storage spaces. The site also contains separate utility plant.
