Bombardier has appointed CAE as an Authorized Training Provider for pilot and maintenance training for all Bombardier business jets in Europe, announcing that they will establish a new Bombardier-dedicated training center in Amsterdam, scheduled to open in 2014. The facility will begin by offering pilot and maintenance training on Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft equipped with the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck. The site will complement CAE’s ATP location in London (Burgess Hill), U.K. which offers training for the Learjet 40, Learjet 45, Global Express and Global Express XRS aircraft, and in Amsterdam, which offers training on the Challenger 300 and 604.
When fully equipped, the facility will offer Level D full-flight simulators and an integrated suite of flight training devices and advanced classroom settings to provide both pilot and maintenance training for multiple Bombardier business aircraft platforms. The $12-$15 million investment will be borne almost completely by CAE. Visit www.bombardier.aero for more information.
