CAE Mexico training centre opens


Mexico’s first business jet and civil helicopter training centre opens

CAE announced that Mexico’s first
business jet and civil helicopter training centre is open and ready for pilot
training. New full-flight simulators (FFS) for the Bombardier Learjet 40/45
aircraft and the Bell 412 helicopter were
recently qualified to Level D-equivalent standards by Mexico’s
Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil (DGAC).

The new CAE training centre is located at Mexico’s leading business aviation
airport, Aeropuerto Internacional de Toluca, Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateos, in Toluca, Mexico,
easily accessible from Mexico City.

“CAE continues to expand its presence in emerging business aviation and
civil helicopter training markets around the world,” said Jeff Roberts,
CAE’s group president, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services.
“We are pleased to bring CAE’s world-class, customized instruction to the
Latin America region so operators of the Learjet 40, Learjet 45 and Bell 412 can receive the
highest-quality training, conveniently close to their base of operations.”

CAE is Bombardier’s authorised training provider for the Learjet 40/40XR and
Learjet 45/45XR aircraft. The CAE Bell 412 training programme is licensed by
Bell Helicopter for the Mexico
training centre and other locations.
