Thales to Deliver Innovative Training Solutions for Australian Defence Force Helicopter Pilots

  • Three Reality H simulators to be delivered to train the Australian Army and Navy helicopter pilots.
  • High-quality training with FFS EC135 and other training devices.
  • Powerful image generation system, reliable instructor control, and high accuracy motion system.

The next generation of Australia’s Army and Navy helicopter pilots will be trained using three Thales full flight simulators and a suite of other synthetic training devices. These will be supplied to prime contractor Boeing Defence Australia under the Helicopter Aircrew Training System (HATS) programme.

Thales will provide three EC135 Reality H Full Flight Simulators (FFS), its high-fidelity mission-orientated training system which is already in service around the world.  

This modular state-of-the-art simulator provides improved operational efficiency and high-quality training supported by a powerful image generation system, reliable instructor control, and high accuracy motion system.

Chris Jenkins, Thales Australia CEO said: “We are looking forward to working closely with Boeing Defence Australia to deliver these superb simulators and associated equipment.”

Beyond the simulators, Thales will deliver training courseware and services, including ground instructors to train Navy Aviation Warfare Officers and air crew sensor operators.

In addition, Thales will supply its Meghas avionics suite for the 15 EC135 aircraft to be provided by Boeing. Thales will also provide the IT infrastructure for the training school.

“This contract enhances Thales’s position as a leading provider of high quality training capabilities and services. These advanced technologies will ensure the next generation of Australian military helicopter pilots has access to some of the best training solutions on the market.” Jean-Jacques Guittard, Thales Vice President in charge of Training & Simulation business
