Boeing delivers C-17 Cargo Compartment Trainer to Royal Australian Air Force
Boeing has delivered a full-scale C-17 Globemaster III Cargo Compartment Trainer (CCT) to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), ensuring that RAAF loadmaster training can be cost-effectively completed in Australia instead of in the United States. The CCT is a fully functional replica of a C-17 fuselage in a dedicated facility at RAAF Base Amberley. It can realistically simulate both day and night operating and loading conditions for loadmaster, aeromedical evacuation and aeromedical specialist training. The facility at Amberley also includes classrooms, loading vehicles, simulated cargo and other training assets. It is the third operational Boeing C-17 CCT; the two others are located at Altus Air Force Base in the United States.
