Posted 13 February 2018 · Add Comment

Inzpire Limited have been sub-contracted by Lockheed Martin UK to provide aircrew instruction and technical support for the duration of a contract which will see Lockheed Martin UK provide a new simulator training facility at RAF Odiham.

Inzpire have also partnered with Operational Solutions Limited, who will provide technical maintenance support to the facility.

Inzpire were selected for the instructional responsibility at the facility due to their experience in providing live flying training to both the UK Joint Helicopter Command Apache and Wildcat fleets as well as their  history in providing the synthetic training at the Air Battlespace Training Centre at RAF Waddington.

The new simulator facility will be the first Support Helicopter synthetic system capable of providing full crew training for pilots and crewmen in individual or multi-aircraft tactical scenarios. Inzpire will use the highest quality personnel with contemporary operational experience to enhance the immersive training experience of military aircrew.

Inzpire’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Jonny Priest, said: “Inzpire is delighted that our proud history and reputation for providing the highest quality of training in the synthetic environment to members of the UK military has been recognised in winning this contract to support the new Chinook Mk6 simulator facility. We look forward to working with Lockheed Martin UK and Operational Solutions Limited to bring ‘whole crew’ operational training to the RAF Chinook Force, helping them to operate at the highest levels of preparedness at the vanguard of UK military operations”.
