Global flight training provider CAE, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, has signed training renewal agreements with several worldwide business aviation operators.
Private jet charter and management provider Alerion has renewed its exclusive pilot training contract for two years on multiple aircraft platforms, including those from all the major jet OEMs. Meanwhile, Germany-based DC Aviation, which has been a CAE client since 2008, has signed on for another three years of Bombardier, Dassault, and Gulfstream initial type rating and recurrent training. Windsor Jet, which has used CAE as its training partner for more than a decade, renewed that exclusive arrangement for an additional four years, on multiple platforms including the Citation X, Gulfstream IV and V, and Hawker 800XP.
Privately held U.S. aircraft design and manufacturer Icon Aviation, which joined the CAE customer family last year with 70 pilots beginning initial type rating as well as recurrent training, has inked a two-year exclusive deal for training on a variety of aircraft from Gulfstream, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, and Beechcraft.
“We are excited to support our customers’ growth and we look forward to working with them long into the future,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s group president of civil aviation training solutions.
