PENSACOLA, Fla. (May 10, 2018) Chief Aviation Support Equipment Technician Andrew Czarnecki shows Under Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly the Multipurpose Reconfigurable Training System 3D® (MRTS 3D®) Mobile Electric Power Plant (MEPP) simulator at Naval Air Technical Training Center. Czarnecki, an Aviation Support Equipment "A" School instructor, demonstrated how the gaming technology can be used to train initial accession aviation maintenance students. Modly has initiated a clean-sheet review, or "Education for Seapower" initiative, of the Department of the Navy's approach to education across the Navy and Marine Corps to instill a learning culture in the department where knowledge produces sea power. Modly's Pensacola visit was an opportunity to update him on the latest force development approaches for building a talented fleet by taking recruits from "street-to-fleet" and transforming civilians into highly skilled, operational, and combat ready warfighters.
