Practice like we play: Simulator of the HC-130J Aug. 14, 2023

DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz.-- U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Max Miller, 79th Rescue Squadron commander, and Capt. Alex Frazier, 79th RQS pilot, fly in an HC-130J Combat King II simulation aircraft during routine training at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. Aug. 9, 2023. 

The simulation aircraft allowed pilots to train at higher levels with replicated threats over contested areas with mitigated risk; the simulation is working to network with other aircraft simulators, to would making flight scenarios nearly endless.
