Canada's CAE inks deal for Oman Air Force

Full-flight simulator to train Oman airmen following recent order of eight C295 aircraft

Canada's CAE inks deal for Oman Air Force

A Canadian aviation firm has won a contract to develop a full-flight simulator for the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO).

CAE said it had won a series of military contracts valued at more than $55.5m including the Oman deal.

“These orders are indicative of the types of opportunities we see as a result of CAE’s global footprint, position on key platforms, and the fundamental value of simulation-based training solutions,” said Gene Colabatistto, group president, Military Products, Training and Services, CAE.

“In growth markets such as the Middle East and India, we continue to see a solid pipeline of opportunities for our product and services.”

CAE will design and manufacture a C295 simulator, the third to be developed by CAE through a strategic cooperation agreement with Airbus Military.

The C295 will support the training requirements of the RAFO, which recently ordered eight C295 aircraft for tactical transport and maritime patrol, and will be delivered in 2014.

CAE is a global leader in modelling, simulation and training for civil aviation and defence.

The company employs about 8,000 people at more than 100 sites and training locations in 30 countries.
