Training & Operations

S3 Instructor/Operator providing instruction to student aviators in RW flight simulator.

S3 provides Training solutions to DoD, US Military Services, other US Government agencies, Partner Nations, and Commercial Customers. Our solutions represent the full spectrum of live, constructive and virtual training programs.  S3’s training products and services include individual training, education, and professional development for military forces and other security agencies; collective training programs for crews, teams, units, joint operations, and coalition exercises; simulation/simulator training programs that enhance learning and lower customer costs; and advisory and assistance technical services that help our customers execute force development, force modernization, mission analysis, and acquisition strategies.

All subordinate organizations within S3 are capable of providing training products and services to our customers.  However, S3’s CONUS based Training and System Support Business Unit (TSS) has the most experience in these areas and is mirrored in capabilities by our wholly owned subsidiary S3 International (S3I) that delivers similar solutions to OCONUS customers. Subsidiary Kachemak Bay Flying Service (KBFS) offers technical training, primarily to General Aviation commercial customers within the United States.
