The people behind
Typhoon

The Eurofighter Typhoon consortium brings together the capability in European aerospace in order to create a world-class weapon system.
Eurofighter Typhoon is built on the strength of 4 European nations: UK, Germany, Italy and Spain, and their leading aerospace and defence companies. This partnership is unrivalled allowing equal access to shared technologies and the creation of long-lasting political and industrial relations. The programme supports highly-skilled and specialised jobs across Europe. The Eurofighter consortium is based and registered in Munich. Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH is the company that co-ordinates the design, production and upgrade of the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.
 
The four partner nations of Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK established the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) to manage their requirements and act as the primary customer interface with industry. Similarly, the national aerospace companies – Airbus, BAE Systems and Finmeccanica – established Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH to act as the primary interface with the customer (NETMA) and coordinate the programme across industry. EUROJET, comprising Rolls-Royce (RR), MTU Aero Engines, Avio and Industria de Turbo Propulsores (ITP), is the industrial consortium responsible for management of the development, production, maintenance and sales of the EJ200 engine.
