CAE USA prepares for US Army training

2nd September 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CAE USA has begun training the initial cadre of instructor pilots on three new Grob G120TP aircraft for the US Army’s Fixed-Wing Flight Training programme.

Progress is also being made in the construction of a new Dothan Training Center located at Dothan Regional Airport in Alabama, where training will be provided to more than 450 US Army fixed-wing aviators annually. The facility will also provide training for US Air Force C-12 aircrew.

CAE USA is constructing the new training centre to support army fixed-wing flight training until March 2024. Training operations will begin in the Spring of 2017.

Ray Duquette, president and general manager, CAE USA, said: ‘This turnkey training programme will include live, virtual and constructive training that will provide the army with a modern, flexible and cost-effective training solution specifically designed for the army's fixed-wing community. 

‘Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training is exactly the kind of training systems integration programme that CAE is focused on providing its military customers in the US and around the world.’
