CAE

Montreal-based flight simulator manufacturer CAE Inc. has signed a series of contracts worth more than C$130m ($97.9m) with airlines and aircraft manufacturers to supply full-flight simulators. The contracts with both airlines and aircraft manufacturers cover the entire career life cycle of professional pilots, from cadet to captain and crew sourcing.

“We are thrilled to support the fleet growth of our long-standing airline customers by offering the most flexible array of training equipment and cadet-to-captain training solutions to the market,”
said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s group president, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.

The six full-flight simulators (FFSs) sales bring the total number of FFS sales announced to date in fiscal 2016 to 15 sales. The FFSs are at list prices, which include the value of OEM aircraft-specific data, parts and equipment (DP&E), normally procured by CAE in the manufacturing of its simulators. In the case of these contracts, some customers are providing part of the OEM content.

The entirety of the contract includes:

  • Four full-flight simulators, including three Boeing 737 MAX and one Boeing 777, as well as two CAE Simfinity 400XR Integrated Procedures Trainers (IPT) to Shanghai Eastern Flight Training (SEFTC, the training center subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines).
