I left the British Army in February, where my last
posting was at the Air Manoeuvre Centre of Specialisation teaching Electronic
Warfare and helicopter tactics to the Army pilot’s course. Part of this role was
mentoring students through mission planning, delivery of orders, the execution
of the mission in a 6 aircraft tactics trainer and after action reviews.
On exiting I was employed by Inzpire to deliver helicopter
tactics ground school and simulator flying to the European Defence Agency at
RAF Linton on Ouse. This facility provides training to helicopter crews from
across Europe who arrive with a variety of operational experience across
numerous aircraft types. The synthetic training at RAF Linton on Ouse is
delivered on two existing simulator devices and I can say that now having
worked on the TFS we have a product which really does set a new bench mark. Our
very capable demonstrator has endless possibilities, be that the ability to
conduct surveillance operations utilising an EO/IR device, emulate threat
warnings with associated entities, conduct air assault, recce, screens/guards, AOPs
and airborne forward air controlling. This capability and the ability to scale
and upgrade the commercial off the shelf software and hardware that makes up
Inzpire’s TFS is in my opinion second to none.
I have 14 years’ experience operating and instructing with
simulators in all forms but I have never experienced such a combination of high
fidelity aircraft model and complex tactical environment in an affordable
trainer which flies like the real machine. Combine these capabilities with
visuals that create a truly immersive experience and you have a device that can
train the pilot, navigator, observer or crewman to a level I wish I had in all
my years’ of service.
If you happen to be passing by the Inzpire stand on the
week of DSEI I would love nothing more than to show you the only affordable,
high fidelity simulator supported by a team of experts who can offer you
through life training to meet all of your training needs for now and long into
