Aviation Ground Equipment Corp. Electric Cart at F-35 training aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72)
Aviation Ground Equipment Corp.’s manufactured F-35 270VDC Electric Cart was part of the training the Air Force’s 33rd Maintenance Squadron provided to F-35C Lightning II operations aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) from Aug. 30 to Sept. 7, 2017.
Two Airmen and two Sailors from the aerospace ground equipment flight and the wheel and tire shop qualified Abraham Lincoln Sailors to operate F-35 support equipment, bringing the U.S. Navy one step closer to initial operations capability.
With this training, the Abraham Lincoln’s aviation structural mechanics are now qualified to tear down, inspect, clean, rebuild and service wheel assemblies.
Additionally, AGEC technicians trained carrier Sailors to operate the systems that support an aircraft while its engines are off.
