"Enhancing our warfighters' readiness is of utmost importance to the Flight School XXI team," said Austin Yerks, president of CSC's North American Public Sector Defense Division. "Throughout each phase of design, development and testing, the focus of the team remained the same: to provide the best possible training experience for future combat aviators in the actual aircraft they will operate. Through the dedication and hard work of all of the team members, the Kiowa simulators are online to prepare our men and women for an uncertain and changing battlefield."
