Leonardo and CAE team to offer helicopter training to the US
Leonardo and CAE USA have teamed to collaborate to offer integrated helicopter training for the US government market.
A memorandum of agreement (MoA) has been signed between the two that expands the existing relationship the companies have with each other for helicopter training, and is centred on providing tailored helicopter-and-training packages to US government operators and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers.
The companies say they will provide low risk and best value by offering a comprehensive and integrated training package that includes aircraft, simulators and courseware.
The offerings could include helicopters, simulators and training devices, courseware, training services, and training centres, and each arrangement will be specific to the customer and determined on a case-by-case basis.
‘Leonardo has a long history of collaborating with CAE for helicopter training. By creating integrated training systems for the US government together, we are able to offer forward-looking, cost effective solutions that ensure mission success,’ William Hunt, CEO of the AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation, said.
‘We look forward to collaborating with Leonardo on training opportunities in the US military market related to Leonardo's range of helicopter platforms,’ Ray Duquette, president and general manager of CAE USA, added.
‘Our extensive experience in helicopter simulation and training and specifically on Leonardo helicopters means we will be able to offer timely, cost-effective and integrated training solutions to our US customers.’
