Qatar Executive Launch Customer For CAE's Newest FFS

Training For Bombardier Global Express XRS Begins This Month

CAE announced Wednesday at the Dubai Airshow that it has entered into a long-term agreement with Qatar Executive, Qatar Airways' corporate jet subsidiary, for pilot training services on the Bombardier Global Express XRS (GEX) and the Bombardier Challenger 605. The training will be conducted at Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

As the anchor customer, Qatar Executive will be the first to train its pilots on the new Challenger 605 full-flight simulator (FFS) when it is qualified by regulators in early 2012.

Training will include initial and recurrent courses for both aircraft as well as a range of CAE e-Learning general operating subjects.

"Private aircraft operated in the Arab world are set to triple over the next 10 years so there will be a growing need for training and maintenance support as this sector flourishes," said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways.

"To meet this growing demand, it is essential for us to acquire the best possible quality training for our crew, and to ensure the continuity of Qatar Executive's success and its growth in the region and across the world we have selected CAE both for their global leadership in training and the convenient access to advanced technology and world-class facilities," he added.

"Qatar Executive is known for providing a 5-star experience for their clients, and at ECFT we consistently deliver a 5-star training experience for pilots and maintenance technicians," said Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "We are very pleased for the opportunity to help them achieve their goal of maintaining the highest standards of aviation safety through continuous training of flight crews."

In the two years since its inception, Qatar Executive says it has rapidly evolved into a world-class corporate aviation company backed by the global expertise and track record of 5-star ranked carrier, Qatar Airways.

Emirates-CAE Flight Training is jointly operated by the Emirates Group and CAE and is located close to Dubai International Airport.
