Volker Paltzo, CEO of Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH, said: 'Passing the 500,000 flying hours milestone underscores the fact that today Eurofighter Typhoon is the backbone of NATO's European air defence.

'But, looking to future horizons, it will continue to be developed to defend against all threats for decades to come. The aircraft will play a key role in the future battlespace, and will be a central pillar in any future European combat air system, developing and integrating key technologies that will feed in to that future system.'

Eurofighter Typhoon has rapidly accumulated hours across the fleet, particularly in recent years, following an increase in the tempo of air policing and combat operations. There is now a fleet of almost 500 aircraft protecting Europe's borders, with the potential for this number to grow substantially in the coming decades.

In the future, Eurofighter Typhoon will get a new electronically scanned array radar, an enhanced human machine interface and new weapons.

Eurofighter is the biggest and most successful defence collaboration programme ever undertaken in Europe. It has provided security, industrial and economic cooperation and sustainment on a previously unseen scale. It is the model for future defence and industrial collaboration in Europe.

Clemens Linden, CEO of Eurojet Turbo GmbH, who provide the engines for the aircraft, joined the celebrations.

He said: 'We have clocked up more than a million hours of engine performance for the EJ200 which is a major achievement and through countless deployments, both in Europe and internationally, we have enjoyed incredible engine reliability.
'There's no doubt, that over the first million flying hours, the EJ200 engines have demonstrated they are the best in their class. Looking ahead to the next million, the engine can also be further developed to ensure that Eurofighter Typhoon will maintain its combat edge.'
