Inzpire Limited and Discovery Air Defence Services Inc. (“DA Defence”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery Air Inc, have joined forces to bid for the UK Ministry of Defence’s Air Support to Defence Operational Training (ASDOT) programme. The two companies will combine their unique capabilities in the live training environment to deliver the most innovative, relevant and safe training solution for the UK Ministry of Defence.
Inzpire are experts in team and collective training. They provide an independent exercise management team to the RAF’s Air Battlespace Training Centre, as well as supplying expertise within the RAF’s Air Warfare Centre through the management of large scale live training exercises. Inzpire’s Qualified Helicopter Flying Instructors instruct the British Army Apache Attack Helicopter and Wildcat Helicopter Conversion-to-Type and conversion to role courses. With proven experience of delivery to the UK MoD, Inzpire will continue their exceptional service to the customer through the delivery of ASDOT.
With the world’s largest privately-owned operational fleet of aggressor aircraft for air support, DA Defence is the most experienced provider of turnkey air support for militaries worldwide. DA Defence’s mix of modern fighters and special mission aircraft equipped with radar, sensors, EA, and targeting capabilities will deliver the mission profiles, flexibility, and availability demanded by ASDOT.
“After careful consideration of the customer’s requirements, we are pleased to formalise our relationship with Discovery Air Defence. Their proven track record providing ASDOT equivalent services and excellent Flight Safety Record make them an ideal partner for this programme” said Hugh Griffiths, CEO of Inzpire Ltd.
Paul Bouchard, President of DA Defence, said “As the world leader in contracted air combat training, Discovery Air Defence are very excited to join forces with the UK’s Inzpire. The combined strengths of our two companies are uniquely suited to meet the ASDOT requirements and to serve the British Armed Forces’ evolving live-fly, tactical training needs well into the mid-2030s”.
