CAE Maritime Middle East (MME) is delivering training for United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force RQ-1E remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) aircrew, the company announced on 23 February.

The courses include an RPA Sensor Operator Fundamentals Course and RPA Aircrew Fundamentals Course.

CAE is delivering the training under a contract signed in 2017. 

The initial courses will include UAS concepts and theory, including flight characteristics and sensor theory, learning about different types of unmanned systems and general aviation concepts as well as operational concepts for deploying RPA to support operations.

CAE MME is also establishing a training centre where all RPA type conversion and mission training will be conducted.

The company has designed and developed the courseware and comprehensive curriculum for academic training and will soon begin delivering courses specific to the UAE Air Force’s RQ-1E Predator. To support the ground-based training system, CAE has already delivered desktop trainers and will be delivering a full suite of additional synthetic training equipment, including UAS mission trainers and high-fidelity, type-specific mission trainers. 

In addition to delivering the classroom and simulator training, CAE MME instructors will provide the live flying instruction for UAE Air Force RQ-1E Predator RPA aircrews.
