The 70 aircrew training devices include a mixed bag of devices. Nearly half of the 70 are (what is equivalent to) Level D Full Flight Simulators and the other half are Loadmaster training devices and minor aircrew devices. TRU’s engineering team, a robust team of seasoned subject matter experts, support the C-17 program from its headquarters in Goose Creek, South Carolina, while approximately 115 employees support are stationed at 14 U.S Air Force Bases (AFB) and one Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) site, where they keep our air force maintenance teams mission ready on a daily basis.
