Inzpire expands Typhoon QWI training support

27th October 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Inzpire will support the Royal Air Force Typhoon Qualified Weapon Instructor (QWI) course under a contract extension announced on 24 October.

The course, delivered by 29(R) Squadron at RAF Coningsby, runs for 7 months, culminating in the seven-week long Exercise Triplex Warrior. Pilots then move on to Exercise Cobra Warrior - Inzpire has been supporting this element for over a year.

The extension to its current Air Warfare Centre White Force contract will see the company expand its support to cover the entirety of the QWI course.

Inzpire will take-over support of the planning and preparation of Triplex Warrior from RAF Squadron’s QWI staff, and will mentor the QWI candidates during the planning phase of each scenario. 

In providing all-round White Force support to 29 Squadron, Inzpire’s experts will free up capacity for the RAF QWI staff to concentrate their efforts on instructing and supervising the course candidates both on the ground and in the air.

Dan Simmons, Inzpire’s head of aviation experts, said: ‘By implementing the skills learned from ten years’ experience of delivering team and collective training, our experts will help broaden the training provided to Typhoon QWI candidates. 

‘Having members of the same team providing the White Force services to both 29 and 92 Squadrons will also make the combined training experience of Ex Triplex Warrior and Ex Cobra Warrior even more coherent and efficient.’
