On Wednesday, August 30, conference participants will have the opportunity to fly the T-50A cockpit demonstrator!
Lockheed Martin has two large operations in South Carolina. Beaufort is home to one of the first bases in the U.S. for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and home to the Lockheed Martin Marine Corps Pilot Training Center. The T-50A will be manufactured at Greenville Operations if Lockheed Martin wins the United States Air Force Advanced Pilot Training competition.
The T-50A will be the centerpiece of the company’s participation in the SC Aerospace Conference. Conference participants will have the opportunity to learn about the trainer firsthand, and limited opportunities to fly the cockpit demonstrator will be available.
