The contract also includes computer-based training integrated with CAE's Learning Management System. CAE will work with local Polish industry to design, develop and deliver the comprehensive SW-4 training system and ongoing support services following delivery.

For the German Air Force, a range of on-site training support services for flight simulation equipment will be delivered. The annual maintenance and logistics support contracts with the German armed forces cover a range of flight simulators, including Tornado, C-160 Transall, P-3C Orion, Mk-41 Sea King and the German Forces' pilot selection system.

AgustaWestland’s Authorised Synthetic Training Centre in Subang, Malaysia - PWN Excellence – operates a CAE 3000 Series AW139 full-flight simulator. Under a new contract, CAE will provide PWN with comprehensive lifecycle support and maintenance services on the AW139 simulator over the next ten years.

Gene Colabatistto, group president, defence and security, CAE, said: ‘Our core market of virtual aviation training and CAE's unparalleled global footprint continue to provide a solid base for our defence business as we broaden our approach and leverage our world-class training systems integration capabilities across the air, land, sea and public safety domains. Poland is a growth market in Europe with a range of opportunities for simulation-based solutions, so we are pleased the Polish Air Force selected CAE to develop a new helicopter simulator and look forward to addressing future requirements.’
