Transport & refuelling
Thales and Airbus Military are delivering a multi-million pound training service for the RAF’s new transport aircraft. Working together we have designed and built the A400M Atlas training school which opened in 2014. We are now managing the training service including the installation and maintenance of full flight simulators and all synthetic training equipment, and supporting the RAF’s own course design team and training staff.
We are one of the primary sub-contractors for the Voyager programme, supplying mission simulators, defensive aids, avionics and mission planning systems. We have delivered a comprehensive training programme for pilots, cabin crew and maintenance staff which includes a full flight simulator at the training school built by Thales.

Thales has a long history of working with the RAF on the Tornado fast-jet. We manage a full training service for the Tornado GR4 including three mission simulators to train RAF pilots and navigators.
