May Provide Training On Learjet 40/45, XR Variants
CAE and Bombardier Aerospace
recently announced the expansion of their 20-year Authorized
Training Provider agreement, to include Learjet 40/40 XR and
Learjet 45/45 XR aircraft for European customers. The original
agreement announced in June 2007 named CAE as Bombardier’s
Authorized Training Provider to provide pilot and technical
training for Global Express, Global 5000, Global Express XRS, and
Challenger 300 aircraft.
As part of the new agreement, CAE will build and deploy a new
Learjet 40/40 XR and Learjet 45/45 XR aircraft full-flight
simulator (FFS) to the CAE Burgess Hill Training Center in the UK
and a Challenger 300 aircraft FFS in Europe in the fall of 2009.
This marks the first time that training programs for these aircraft
types will be available in Europe, and will augment
Bombardier’s existing training capability.
"We’re delighted that Bombardier has once again placed
their trust and confidence in CAE as a world leading provider of
integrated training solutions," said Jeff Roberts, CAE’s
Group President, Innovation and Civil Training & Services. "Our
decision to deploy a new simulator and training programs in Europe
underscores our firm commitment to bring CAE’s training
network closer to the customer than ever before."
CAE and Bombardier are also collaborating to provide
state-of-the-art training programs that will be delivered by both
CAE and Bombardier to customers worldwide.
"Bombardier and CAE make a great team, with CAE providing the
expertise we need to ensure the training programs we offer
customers are best-in-class," said James Hoblyn, President,
Bombardier Aircraft Services. "We look forward to working with CAE
to implement a comprehensive training program for the Learjet 40/40
XR and Learjet 45/45 XR aircraft at customers’ key locations
These training programs are part of CAE’s global business
aviation expansion announced at NBAA in September 2007. At the
show, CAE announced it was increasing its training programs
worldwide to address 90% of all business aviation aircraft and
cover all major OEMs.
