CAE Awarded Contracts Valued At Nearly $95 Million

Will Provide Seven Full-Flight Simulators, Training Devices And Update Services

CAE announced Wednesday that it has sold seven full-flight simulators (FFSs) and a series of training devices and simulator update services. These include the sale of two Airbus A320 FFSs and a Boeing 737 FFS to Shanghai Eastern Flight Training Center (SEFTC); an A320 to the Zhuhai Flight Training Centre; and a Boeing 737 FFS, an Airbus A320 FFS and a Boeing 787 FFS to undisclosed customers.

The contracts are valued at about $95 million (USD) at list prices and bring the total FFS sales that CAE has announced to date during fiscal year 2013 to 30. Two of the FFS orders were signed in the third quarter ended December 31, 2012 and the remaining five in the fourth quarter.

"It is especially gratifying when customers repeatedly turn to CAE for simulation equipment to support their growth and evolving fleet requirements," said Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "Our customers' loyalty is testament to the continuous innovation of CAE technology and the dedication of our people in delivering service excellence to address ongoing customer needs."

SEFTC, the training center subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines, will take delivery of three CAE 7000 Series Level D FFSs equipped with CAE Tropos-6000 third-generation visual systems, as well as three integrated procedures trainers (IPTs). The two A320 FFSs, two A320 IPTs and the Boeing 737 IPT will be delivered in 2013 to SEFTC at its facilities at Shanghai Pudong Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone in China. The Boeing 737 FFS will be delivered in 2014 to SEFTC's new training center in Kunming, China. With the delivery of these simulators, SEFTC and China Eastern will be operating 16 CAE-built FFSs.

ZFTC, a joint venture of CAE and China Southern Airlines, will take delivery of the A320 FFS in 2013. With 23 CAE-built simulators, ZFTC is one of the largest commercial aviation type-rating training facilities in China.
