The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) awarded BAE Systems contracts valued at more than £220 million ($305 million) to deliver advanced synthetic training for pilots training to fly the Typhoon jet.

Under the Typhoon Future Synthetic Training (TFST) contracts, BAE Systems is leading work to deliver ten simulators, together with training facilities at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and RAF Lossiemouth in Moray. The new training environments will be linked together providing an integrated environment for pilots to train and carry out complex combined training exercises using real world mission software and tactics.

“The investment will deliver a number of valuable operational benefits for the RAF, alongside the positive impact that the increased use of synthetic training will make to reduce carbon emissions. With 9.6 tonnes of carbon saved by every synthetic flight, it will help reduce the current carbon footprint of live training, supporting the net zero ambitions held by our customers and ourselves,”  Richard Hamilton, Typhoon Programme Director, Europe – BAE Systems Air, said.
