Global flight training provider CAE has launched its newest training platform—a Bombardier Global 5000/6000 simulator with the Vision flight deck. The full-flight simulator (FFS) installed at the company’s London Burgess Hill facility, is equipped with CAE’s Tropos visual system, offering a highly-realistic training environment. Luxaviation and TAG Aviation Europe are among the business aviation operators that have already begun using the device.
“Offering the most innovative training equipment and highest quality training programs to our customers is always a top priority at CAE,” explained Nick Leontidis, the company’s group president for civil aviation training solutions. “The deployment of the latest Bombardier Global Vision full-flight simulator at CAE London Burgess Hill highlights our commitment to delivering the best training experience to our customers.”
In addition to the London facility, CAE also offers Vision training at its locations in Amsterdam, Dallas, Dubai, and Montreal. It currently has seven full-flight Global series FFS among them, and its partnership with Bombardier adds another three to its network.
At EBACE, CAE (Booth H89) also announced it has signed an agreement with OJets, a new business aviation operator that recently acquired Elit’Avia. The three-year deal calls for CAE to provide pilot training for Bombardier’s Global Vision flight deck, as well as the Global Express and the Challenger 605/650 in its European training network, including its Amsterdam and Burgess Hill locations.
“As a new operator on the market, choosing to partner with the leader in aviation training was a natural choice,” explained Nick Houseman, CEO of the Singapore-based OJets, which manages a fleet of 23 midsize to large-cabin business jets. “We are proud to count on CAE as we grow our operations. We are confident that our pilots will receive world-class training for the next three years.”
