CAE increases training programs to address 90% of all business aviation aircraft and cover all major OEMs

    NBAA, Atlanta, GA, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - (NYSE:   CGT; TSX: CAE) - CAE
has launched an expansion of its global training network by adding 16 new
business jet training programs to its operations. With this expansion, CAE
will offer training on 90 percent of all business aviation platforms.
    The new training programs address the six largest business jet aircraft
manufacturers: Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault Falcon, Embraer, Gulfstream and
Hawker Beechcraft. The training programs will be located in the United States
and in a range of global locations. The new programs will enter service within
the next two years.
    "We are excited about this major new initiative and are proud to be able
to broaden our services offering to address even more of our clients' needs,"
said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Innovation and Civil Training &
Services. "By expanding our business aviation training footprint to address
more aircraft around the globe, we are offering more choices to our customers
and bringing our training services closer to more corporate operators than
ever before."
    In addition, CAE announced that its Gulfstream 550 full-flight simulator
located at Emirates-CAE Flight Training in Dubai has been certified Ready for
Training; also that its Sikorsky S-76B simulator located at CAE SimuFlite's
North East Training Centre has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Level D qualification - the highest qualification for flight simulators.
    CAE's product portfolio for the new training programs includes
full-flight simulators (FFSs), as well as the CAE Simfinity(R) product suite
consisting of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) training
devices. CAE Simfinity offers the same true-fidelity Level D simulation
technology used in full-flight simulators end-to-end along the entire training
continuum: from CAE courseware and tools like procedure trainers and
brief/debrief flight simulator stations used in instructor-led sessions to
those designed for on-line computer-based training. CAE's Simfinity(R) makes
the learning experience real and absolutely seamless, improving training
efficiency and effectiveness while reducing risk and cost.
