MONTREAL—Montreal aviation simulation and training firm CAE said it has been named the exclusive provider for Dassault Aviation’s new Falcon 5X long-range business jet.
According to CAE, it will now be the French aircraft maker’s sole supplier of advanced pilot, maintenance and cabin crew training for the all-new Falcon 5X.
“CAE is very proud to be part of the innovative, new Falcon 5X aircraft program as the approved training partner,” Nick Leontidis, CAE Group president, said in a statement.
As part of the agreement, CAE said it will develop the world’s first two Falcon 5X simulators.
CAE has designed, developed and delivered the world’s first full-flight simulators for more than 40 new aircraft from 16 different original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The two companies will work to determine the best initial location for deployment of training services based on customer demand, CAE said, with additional deployments planned as the Falcon 5X rollout continues.
As a factory-approved training provider for Dassault Falcon, CAE delivers Falcon training around the world for 13 Falcon models.
“We are very pleased with our long-standing partnership with CAE,” said Frédéric Leboeuf, vice-president, of Falcon operations at Dassault. “We are delighted to expand our relationship with the addition of the Falcon 5X.”
