The Montreal-based firm will also sell an SW-4 helicopter full-flight simulator to the Polish Air Force School in Deblin, Poland. The simulator for the multi-role light utility helicopter will be delivered in 2016 to assist the Polish Air Force’s training program for air force cadets. CAE considers Poland to be a promising market offering a variety of opportunities for simulation-based solutions, according to its group president for defence and security, Gene Colabatistto.

CAE has also been contracted to deliver on-site services to support the flight simulation activities of the German Air Force. This deal includes maintenance and logistics support for the German Forces’ Tornado, C-160 Transall, P-3C Orion and Mk-41 Sea King flight simulators, as well as its pilot selection system.

A separate order came from Malaysia’s PWN Excellence Sdn Bhd (PWN), an Authorized Synthetic Training Centre for AgustaWestland, which has a CAE 3000 Series AW139 full-flight simulator installed on its premises. This contract will see CAE providing lifecycle support and maintenance services for the simulator over the next ten years.
