Entering the year 2004 the Indonesian Air Force (IDAF) F-16A Full Mission Simulator has been servicing the 3rd Air Squadron 3rd Fighter Wing pilots for flight training for more than 6 years. During the service, some minor or major problems had caused it stop servicing for a matter of time. But because of the expertise of all Training Facility engineers, these problems had been handled professionally. After a hard nonstop working, finally the Maintenance Team got the highest achievement in keeping the F-16A Simulator operation for 2.000 Hours. This achievement was celebrated on June 22nd, 2002 in a special program that was attended by Iswahjudi Air Force Base Commandant, 3rd Fighter Wing Commandant and 20th Maintenance Depo Commandant as weel as all officers who contributed to the F-16A Simulator operation readiness. One thing that make us proud that this 2.000 Hours celebration was also taken into a special magazine "ANGKASA" which focuses in air and space community. The picture shown below was taken after the 2.000 Hours Achievement in Service celebration.
