MONTREAL—Flight training company CAE has won military contracts worth more than $110 million.

One of the contracts is to provide fixed-wing, advanced jet trainer aircraft simulators and training devices to meet the future aircrew training requirements of an unnamed customer.

CAE will design and manufacture a number of full-mission simulators that will each feature a high-fidelity replica of the cockpit surrounded by an 11-foot front projection dome display.

It will also provide integrated procedures trainers, an egress training device, an ejection seat training device and a range of brief/debrief systems.


Meanwhile, the Montreal-based firm has also been awarded a one-year contract renewal by L-3 MAS, a subsidiary of L-3 Communications, to provide a range of in-service support services for the Canadian Forces’ CF-18 aircraft.

The services include avionics software upgrades, integrated logistics support and data management services.

L-3 MAS has been the prime contractor on the CF-18 in-service support program since 1986 and CAE has been performing systems engineering support services for the CF-18 fleet for more than 25 years.

CAE designs and builds modeling, simulation and training devices for civil aviation and defence, employing about 8,000 people at more than 100 sites and training locations in about 30 countries.
