CAE adds RB Group to its digital solutions business


CAE has added RB Group as part of its expansion into digital flight crew management. RB is a provider of integrated solutions that modernise the way airline and business aircraft operators interact with their crew. CAE said the addition represents “another important milestone in the companys goal to unite operators and crew in a single, interconnected digital ecosystem”.

Nick Leontidis, CAEs  group  president, Civil Aviation Training Solutions, said: “Over the past two years, CAE has been focused on unifying a digital flight operations ecosystem with the goal of delivering a holistic suite of solutions designed to improve operations and enhance crew experience. As they prepare for return to flight, crew members will be able to manage and schedule their activities more effectively and operators will have integrated tools to connect and engage with crews like never before,”

Following CAE’s acquisition of Merlot Aeros crew management and optimisation software in December of last year, the addition of RB Group provides the firm with digital tools that improve operations and crew work-life balance. The list of applications includes a digital logbook, and the crew engagement RosterBuster app.

With over 400,000 users globally and over 500 airlines currently supported, the RosterBuster crew app allows aviation professionals to access instant information, connect to their airline operations, and communicate with fellow crew members.
