Signs New Training Contracts
company, CAE, has been awarded $25 million ($CDN) of new aviation
training business, based on expected simulator usage for centres in
the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain.
"We look forward to forging long-term relationships with each of
these first-time customers," Gary Scott, CAE's group president of
civil simulation and training, said. Three airlines have signed
agreements to train in Amsterdam, including Germany's Germania
Express, which has a three-and-a-half year agreement to train on
the Fokker 100 full-flight simulator, and Netherlands-based
Martinair, which has a one-and-a-half year agreement for Airbus
Transafrik, whose principal hub is in Luanda, Angola, and Ariana
Afghan Airlines will both train at CAE's Brussels centre.
Transafrik pilots will train on the C-130/L100; pilots from Ariana
Afghan will train on the Airbus A300. They are among two of five
airlines that recently signed to train in Brussels.
CAE also signed
multi-year contracts with five other customers to train in Madrid
CAE's global network of training centres has more than 90
full-flight simulators in service, giving the company flexibility
to move around equipment to better serve clients' needs. Increased
demand from European clients, such as Germania, for Fokker 100
training has prompted the company to move an F100 full-flight
simulator from the Brazil centre to Amsterdam. A new Airbus A320
will be installed in Brazil.
