Thales will provide the Kuwait military with flight and mission training solutions for the H225M Caracal helicopters on order from Airbus Helicopters, the company announced on 19 June.

The Reality H Full FFMS will provide pilots with training in navigation, instrument flight, equipment failures and emergency procedures.

The ground training stations will provide initial training in flight procedures for new pilots and tactical training for captains and crews.

Thales' contract with Airbus Helicopters includes the maintenance of the simulators for at least three years.
