Montreal-based simulation and training provider CAE (Booth 372) has announced here at EBACE new training programs, expanded offerings and contract extensions for and within the business aviation community.
CAE RealCase Troubleshooting for maintenance training, introduced at the show, uses the same principles behind the RealCase recurrent training developed for pilots, incorporating recent real-life event scenarios. The training is available for the Dassault Falcon 7X, 900EX EASy and 2000EX EASy models.
CAE has also become the first to offer maintenance training on the Falcon 2000 LXS and 2000S business jets. Maintenance training on these platforms is supplemental to initial Dassault Falcon 2000 EX EASy certification and can also be offered at the customer’s site using CAE’s mobile Infinity-based classroom.
For those in the front seats, CAE now offers upset prevention and recovery training in Europe for business aircraft pilots. Offered in partnership with Aviation Performance Solutions, the program uses proven e-Learning web-based academics, in-aircraft practical skill development and full-motion flight simulator exercises and scenarios. The in-aircraft portion of the training will take place at Seppe Airport in Bosschenhoofd, Netherlands and the simulator portion at CAE’s Amsterdam training center. This training is already available in Phoenix and Dallas in the U.S.
CAE will add Gulfstream G450/550 training to its facilities in Dallas and London, beginning in late 2013 and 2014, respectively. The company currently offers Gulfstream training in Dubai, New York and Shanghai.
The company has also signed a multi-year contract renewal with ExecuJet Aviation Group for crew training on more than 40 aircraft types, including models from Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Hawker Beechcraft. Training will be provided at CAE facilities in Mexico City, Amsterdam, São Paulo, Melbourne, Shanghai, Dubai, London, New York, Phoenix and Dallas. Additionally, CAE and Bombardier have expanded their authorized training provider agreement in Europe, to be marked by the delivery of a Challenger 605 full flight simulator in 2016.
“We are pleased to continue to expand training resource accessibility and options for our business aircraft clients,” said Rob Lewis, CAE’s v-p and general manager, business aviation, helicopter and maintenance training. “We want our customers to be able to train anywhere in the world with ease and get the same exceptional quality and experience.”
