Thales and Inzpire join forces to build mission training capability
Thales and Inzpire have signed a memorandum of understanding that will see both companies working together to deliver mission training solutions for air forces around the world.

Inzpire has decades of military experience and draws on this real-world experience in the delivery of products, services and training. For example the Inzpire team has over 130,000 hours of military fast-jet and combat helicopter experience and together more than 1000 years of military experience, brought from operations in Afghanistan, the Balkans, Libya and Iraq and beyond.
Customers will benefit through this agreement, by having the combined skills and expertise of each company delivering a world-class mission training capability. It will allow customers to address their training needs with a complete package, consisting of the training service and training equipment.
