CAE and Bombardier Aerospace announced Wednesday at EBACE that
they have strengthened their long-term relationship. CAE has been
designated as the Authorized Training Provider (ATP) by Bombardier
for the Challenger 605 aircraft in Dubai. The companies will also
be boosting training capabilities for Challenger 605 aircraft
pilots and maintenance technicians at Emirates-CAE Flight Training
(ECFT) in Dubai, UAE, as well as new Learjet 45 aircraft training
at a future location in Toluca, Mexico, near Mexico City. Training
will be offered on both Bombardier platforms beginning in the
spring of 2012.
Earlier this year, training capability was implemented for
Challenger 300 and Challenger 604 jet operators at the CAE training
centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The first Global Vision
flight deck simulator is also ready for training at the Bombardier
Aircraft Training Centre in Montreal, Canada.
"CAE and Bombardier are committed to delivering the highest
quality of training and a premier level of customer service to
their customers in convenient locations around the world," said
Leon Botteron, General Manager, Bombardier Aircraft Training. "We

Morristown, USA; Dubai, U.A.E.; and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Through this 20-year ATP agreement, CAE delivers world class
training to Bombardier's customers for the following Bombardier

in Montreal in 2012.
