NBAA, Atlanta, GA, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, CAE and Bombardier announced they will add a new Global Express aircraft full-flight simulator (FFS) to CAE’s business aviation training network. This announcement follows CAE’s appointment in June 2007 as Bombardier’s Authorized Training Provider for the Global Express, Global 5000, and Global Express XRS aircraft programs. The new Global Express aircraft full-flight simulator will be deployed at Emirates-CAE Flight Training in Dubai, U.A.E., to address growing demand in the Middle East. It is scheduled to enter service by mid-2009. It is also part of CAE’s broader business aviation training network expansion announced yesterday. Global aircraft training will continue to be offered at Bombardier’s Montreal training centre and, as announced in June 2007, will be offered at CAE’s Burgess Hill training centre in the U.K. starting in the spring of 2008.
"The new training program will bring CAE’s training network closer to the customer than ever before," said Jeff Roberts, CAE’s Group President, Innovation and Civil Training & Services. "CAE will be ready to provide first-class training support, whether the demand is in North America, Europe, the Middle East or Asia."
"CAE’s business aviation network is the ideal complement to our Bombardier Training Centres in Montreal and Dallas," said Gary Scott, President, Bombardier Aircraft Services and New Commercial Aircraft Program. "The CAE network offers Bombardier customers more choice in more locations, with access to the same high-quality standardized training offered at our facilities in Montreal and Dallas."
As part of the Authorized Training Provider agreement signed in June, CAE and Bombardier will collaborate to provide state-of-the-art training programs for pilots and maintenance crews that will include Bombardier’s Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) courseware. The programs will also incorporate the latest simulation-based training methodologies, such as CAE Simfinity(R) tools. These programs will be delivered by both CAE and Bombardier to customers worldwide.

CAE and Bombardier have confirmed that the location for the Challenger 300 aircraft full-flight simulator announced last June will be CAE SimuFlite’s North East Training Centre (NETC) in Morristown, New Jersey. This Challenger 300 aircraft full-flight simulator is scheduled to enter service by the end of 2008.
