Project Air 5438 Phase 1A - Lead-In Fighter Capability Assurance Program (LIFCAP) has been raised to ensure that RAAF Fast Jet training remains effective until the Lead-In-Fighter Training System (LIFTS) Planned Withdrawal Date of 2026, and in so doing assist in mitigating risk associated with the air combat transition to F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

This project will deliver an upgraded Lead-In Fighter Training System which includes an upgrade to the fleet of 33 Hawk 127 aircraft; procurement of new full mission simulators; and procurement of additional Air Combat Manouevering Instrumentation pods.

The introduction into service of the Super Hornet, Growler and JSF will change the training requirements placed on the LIFTS as aircrew are exposed to new tactical networks and increased emphasis on sensor management and a greater cognitive workload.
