Leidos has been chosen to provide pilot training for U.S. Army aviators as part of their transition to the High Accuracy Detection, Exploitation System program.
As part of this work, Leidos will provide ground and flight training for Army aviators through Bombardier Global 6000-class business jets.
“Leidos is pleased to help train the next generation of airborne ISR pilots for the U.S. Army and support their critical mission,” said Micah Stauffer, Leidos vice president and director of aviation operations.
“This project further exemplifies our commitment to supporting the Army’s missions on near-peer platforms. The investments made by Leidos serve as an important foundation as the HADES program continues to evolve.”
Leidos will also provide Federal Aviation Administration-certified flight instructors to instruct the student pilots, as well as curriculum, support materials and help develop training manuals.
