The Georgia Army National Guard GaARNG proposes to modify Building 2336 to include construction of a new Joint Cargo Aircraft JCA Training and Simulator Facility at Robins Air Force Base AFB, Georgia. The new JCA Training and Simulator Facility would be used to train and qualify pilots, flight engineers, other crewmembers and future instructors in the operation of the new C-27J Spartan aircraft. The facility would be collocated with existing operations of H Company, 171st Aviation Training Regiment 171 AVN REGT of the 78th Aviation Troop Command 78 AVN TC of the GaARNG at facilities vacated by the Georgia Air National Guard GaANG when the 116th Air Control Wing 116 ACW relocated to other Robins AFB facilities. The 78 AVN TC mission requirement is to develop an Aircraft Qualification Schoolhouse for the new C-27J in support of the JCA contract and the JCA Joint Program Office. The first C-27J aircraft would be fielded by H Company, 171 AVN REGT, which was relocated from Dobbins Air Reserve Base ARB in Marietta, Georgia, to Robins AFB on August 5, 2008. The C-27J would replace C-23C Sherpa aircraft presently operated by the 171 AVN REGT. The purpose for construction and operation of the JCA Training and Simulator Facility is to provide a suitable area for housing cockpit and fuselage simulators and classroom space collocated on the airfield with other facilities necessary for beddown of the C-27J. The purpose of collocation is to consolidate the functions of the unit together in the flightline operations area of Robins AFB.
