Emirates - CAE signs contract for Hawker Jet pilot training

posted on 14/11/2007: 2037 views



Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) continues the successful expansion of its client base for business jet training with an agreement with the UAE's Empire Aviation Group (EAG). The training contract was signed at the 10th Dubai Airshow by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman & Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group; Sheikh Tariq Bin Faisal Al Qasimi, Chairman of Empire Aviation Group and Emirates Investment Group; and Jeff Roberts, Group President, Innovation & Civil Training & Services, CAE.

Sheikh Ahmed said: "Emirates-CAE Flight Training has built up a reputation in the past five years as a world-class training facility and it now plays a vital role within the aviation industry in the Middle East, Europe and West Asia.

Under the agreement, EAG's flight crew will start training immediately, using the Hawker 800/800XP full-flight simulator, in addition to participating in classroom-based training. Earlier this year, ECFT ordered a new CAE 5000 Series Hawker Beechcraft Hawker 800 XPi and a CAE 7000 Series Bombardier Global Express full-flight simulator, both of which will be installed and commissioned by the second half of 2009. The simulators will feature the CAE TrueTM Electric Motion System, as well as CAE?s next-generation visual solution, including the new CAE Tropos TM-6000 visual system and Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) projectors.

The CAE 5000 Series full-flight simulator for the Hawker 800 XPi will be the first 5000 Series simulator designed and manufactured for that aircraft type. CAE launched the 5000 Series earlier this year. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
