CAE to train NATO E-3A AWACS aircrew

4th April 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CAE has won a contract from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) to provide training services, including instructors, for the NATO E-3A Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircrew training programme at NATO Airbase Geilenkirchen in Germany, the company announced on 30 March.

The new contract, which includes options to extend up to five years, builds on the previous contract under which CAE provides maintenance and support services on the E-3A flight deck simulator and flight training device.

CAE will provide aircrew instructors, mission simulator operators, courseware development and crew resource management training, while continuing to maintain and support the training devices.

CAE delivered the E-3A flight deck simulator in 1982, and is currently modernising the simulators to ensure concurrency with upgrades to NATO's fleet of E-3A AWACS aircraft.
