CAE SimuFlite Awards First Master Aircraft Technician Certifications

The Home Depot Aircraft Systems Technicians Take The Honors

Two Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) technicians from The Home Depot Aviation are the first recipients of CAE's a new Master Aircraft Technician Award, the company announced Friday. Shayne B. Graves and Dennis L. Pepin earned the award for successful completion of CAE's three-year Master Aircraft Technician program.

Graves and Pepin each completed more than 225 hours of Certified Aircraft Maintenance Training in the eight-course program taught at CAE SimuFlite in Dallas, Texas and CAE's North East Training Center in Whippany, New Jersey. Both of The Home Depot Aviation aircraft systems technicians are certified on the Dassault Falcon 50EX aircraft.

"We are delighted that The Home Depot Aviation, Mr. Graves and Mr. Pepin are the first to receive this award," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training, and Services. "CAE is committed to working with our customers to ensure the highest quality safety and efficiency standards. The creation of this award is one way we recognize the commitment put forth by aviation professionals and their flight departments."

"We are very pleased with the operationally oriented training our aircraft systems technicians have received from CAE", said Bill McBride, The Home Depot's Senior Director, Flight Operations. "CAE works with us to tailor our training to address our specific operational needs. We look forward to having more of our fleet technicians certified under the CAE Master Aircraft Technician program."
