CAE Challenger 300 simulator at Montreal training facility
CAE and Bombardier to expand business aviation training network with Challenger 300 full flight simulator at Montreal
Bombardier and CAE announced that they continue to
expand worldwide training support for business aircraft customers with the
addition of a Level D Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) for Challenger 300 aircraft training.
The newly added CAE-built simulator will be located
at Bombardier’s training centre in Montréal,
Canada and will
be deployed in the second half of 2012. This deployment will boost OEM-backed Challenger 300 aircraft pilot
training, currently offered at Bombardier’s training centre in Dallas, where the company operates an
existing FFS for Challenger 300 aircraft.
“Bombardier is committed to proactively increasing
the number of training opportunities available to its business aircraft
customers and ensuring they have access to services in locations that are
convenient to their base of operations,” said Éric Martel, President, Bombardier
Customer Services and Specialised and Amphibious Aircraft.
“Training is all about safety and operational
efficiency,” said Jeff Roberts, group president, Civil Simulation
Products, Training and Services, CAE. “Our close relationship enables Bombardier
and CAE to continuously improve the value of training for aviation
professionals wherever they operate.”
