Lockheed Martin has announced that it officially opened its Advanced Pilot Training (APT) facility in Greenville, South Carolina, on August 16 with a celebration and traditional ribbon cutting event. The newly refurbished building will house the Ground Based Training System (GBTS), as well as the tooling and manufacturing equipment to complete final assembly and flight operations for its T-50A candidate for the USAF’s T-X competition.

‘The T-50A is ready now and fits the need of the 21st century of the US Air Force,’ said US Senator Lindsey Graham.

‘From the innovation of our Skunk Works team in Palmdale, California – who brought this program to life – to the employees in Greenville who will build the T-50A, the brightest minds and the latest technology have been brought together in this facility to provide the USAF with a low risk, highly capable aircraft and training solution,’ adds Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Executive Vice President Orlando Carvalho.
