A worldwide leader in civil training, Thales provides mission readiness through a range of complex training equipment, turnkey training services.

Thales’ expertise includes a global portfolio spanning from helicopter training solutions and services, driving, energy and Smart City applications embedded into a complex operational environment.

The Norwegian Oil & Gas helicopter pilots operate in one of the world’s most challenging airspaces. To address their specific needs, Thales opened a new helicopter training centre in Stavanger in 2016. The training centre will answer the increasing demand for training services for Oil & Gas, defence and Search & Rescues operations (SAR). The training is based on real-flight scenarios and applies the high safety standards required by the Oil & Gas sector in Norway.

The training utilises Thales’ Reality H Full Flight Simulator Level D, as well as the revolutionary motion system Hexaline, combined with high-resolution geo-specific imagery from the ThalesView™ image generator.
