U.S. Coast Guard C-130 Training
April 17, 2007 8:30pm CST
The U.S. Coast Guard is looking for a contract to provide C-130 aircrew training, according to an announcement released Tuesday. The training will include co-pilot training, loadmaster training, re-qualification/first pilot ground training, flight engineer training, and instructor pilot ground school training. The contractor must have the ability to take the USCG C-130 flight operational procedures and incorporate them into their training methodologies. Aircraft systems and curricula must be based on current Coast Guard configured C-130H's. The contractor must have access to, and full scheduling control of, computer-based training aids and a full motion simulator similar to Coast Guard C-130H flight deck configuration.

Interesting to know. I am a bit surprised though, since the USCG is upgrading to the "J" models under deepwater. My guess, is they either need some new crews or will be looking to get some reserve crews up and running for the H as the Js start to come in on the active side of the house.
