CAE Named Authorized Trainer For Bombardier In Europe

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 worldwide."

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.
