E-4B pilots and flight engineers assigned to the 595th Command and Control Group at Offutt Air Force Base have a new state-of-the-art training device.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Simulator Division delivered the first-ever, high-fidelity, full-motion simulator designed to replicate E-4B flying operations and aerial refueling capability on April 1.

Prior to development of the new simulator, E-4B aircrew training relied on a non-E-4B representative Boeing 747 training device — located in Florida — or on the limited training sorties available due to the high mission operational need. With a small aircraft fleet, this simulator provides a strategic training advantage, enabling recurring and upgrade training while retaining aircraft availability for operations.
