The Chief of Naval Aviation Training (CNATRA) requires simulator support for the following individual pilot training courses: Advanced Multi-Engine MPTS Flight Training (CNATRAINST 1542.147D) (https://www.cnatra.navy.mil/pubs/folder2/1542.147D.pdf) and Multi-Engine Flight Instructor and Transition Training (CNATRAINST 1542.153C) (https://www.cnatra.navy.mil/pubs/folder2/1542.153C.pdf) The purpose of the Advanced Multi-Engine MPTS Flight Training is to develop multi-engine flight skills while emphasizing instrument flying and crew coordination. At the successful completion of this training, the flight student will be designated a naval aviator or USAF pilot qualified in multi-engine aircraft, and will have earned a standard instrument rating. The purpose of the Multi-Engine Flight Instructor and Transition Training is to provide designated aviators with appropriate flight procedures, instructional methodologies and techniques to instruct undergraduate flight students in the Advanced Multi-Engine MPTS and Intermediate E-2/C-2 phases of flight training. This training will be broke into 3 separate training blocks to include: Copilot MPTS Training, Aircraft Commander Upgrade Training and Flight Instructor Upgrade Training.

The required T-44C simulator training as described herein, will require the use of contractor provided T-44C FAA equivalent Level 6 FTDs (FAA certification is not required) with an FAA Level D (or higher) equivalent visual system capable of projecting a 220 x 60 degree FOV and the capability to simulate VMC, IMC, day, and night conditions and freeze reset capability and for a non-visual FAA, AATD equivalent, IFT/UTD(s) with freeze and reset capability. The contractor shall be required to provide: an adequate number of T-44C (C-90 ProLine 21) FTDs and IFT/UTD(s) to support annual training requirements; maintenance support of all contractor provided devices; all support personnel required to operate and maintain the devices; all Academic/Simulator instructors; any additional labor required for supervising and administering classroom and simulator training; and data rights for any contractor specific materials for this contracted training. The Government will provide: the T-44C curriculum (CNATRAINST 1542.147D and CNATRAINST 1542.153C): and an appropriate facility (Building 83, capable of supporting up to 5 FTDs and 2 IFT/UTD(s)) at NAS Corpus Christi, TX for the contractor to set up, operate and maintain the contractor provided T-44C FTD(s) and IFT/UTD(s). The Government will also make available for contractor use: two ( 2) Government supported/maintained T-44C IFTs and up to two (2) Level 6 equivalent T-44C FTDs.These devices will be used by the contractor in support of T-44C training as required to supplement (not replace) the contractor provided FTDs and IFT/UTD(s). The T-44C training courses require both classroom academic and practical training using one or more contractor provided T-44C FTDs and IFT/UTD(s). The FTDs will be required to simulate the performance and functional operation of the T-44C aircraft and will be required to minimally meet FAA Level 6 FTD certification requirements as defined under the current FAA 14 CFR Part 60 (FAA certification is not required). The IFT/UTD(s) will be required to minimally meet the requirements of a "non-visual" FAA Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) as defined in FAA AC 61-136 (FAA certification not required).
