Lockeheed Martin Engineer shows a student the different scenerios for a Combat Pilot and the capabilities of the Simulator
The University of Texas at El Paso and Lockheed Martin (LMCO) invite you to experience the excitement of jet fighter flight through pilot training simulators. The simulators will be in the Foyer of the College of Engineering February 19 and 20 from 9:00am-5:00pm and February 21 from 9:00am-3:00pm.
Lockheed pilots will demonstrate how to fly using F-16 and F-22 flight simulators. The visiting simulators are the trainers LMCO uses to train fighter pilots. Students will have the opportunity to experience take off, missiles launching, flight formations and landing the aircraft in real world conditions.
The Lockheed Martin Jet Fighter Simulators are part of the National Engineers Week activities in the College of Engineering. Lockheed Martin will also have an information and corporate recruitment table on Thursday, February 21 from 9:00am-3:00pm located at the Engineering Foyer. Lockheed Martin personnel will also be accepting resumes for internships and full-time hires.
"We are looking to the future," Lockheed Martin pilot Clyde Bellinger said. "Our fighter cockpits demonstrate the different applications of science, technology, engineering, and math that go into designing and flying these aircraft. From advanced avionics to network enabled communication---engineering is key!"
Other Lockheed Engineers that will be joining Bellinger are Ron Quick, Gabriel Alcantar, Hector Escobar along with Patricia Chu and John Duran. Lastly, Director of Finances, UTEP College of Business Administration alumnus and Gold Nugget Award recipient, David Rapisand completes the visiting Lockheed Martin team.
