Airbus Defense And Space To Order Two C295 Simulators From CAE

One To Be Located At Training Center In Seville, Spain

Airbus Defense and Space has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CAE of Canada for the acquisition of two additional Full Flight Simulators for the C295 medium transport and surveillance aircraft. One device will be located at the company's International Training Center at Seville, Spain and the other with an undisclosed C295 operator. The deal will support the rapidly growing number of C295s in service worldwide and will take to six the number of C295 simulators purchased from CAE.

In total, 169 C295s have been ordered by 24 countries worldwide, in a variety of configurations including maritime patrol and search and rescue.

The C295 is a leading contender for Canada's new fixed-wing search and rescue (FWSAR) aircraft. Should it be selected for this important project, the additional simulator at the International Training Centre will immediately allow for the training of Canadian crewmembers until a training centre is established in Canada.

The C295 contains a substantial quantity of Canadian content. Beyond CAE, the aircraft is powered by engines made by Pratt & Whitney Canada, electro-optical systems are provided by L3 Wescam and, in the FWSAR role for Canada, it would be supported in service through a partnership with PAL Aerospace.

The relationship between CAE, Airbus Defense and Space, and its Airbus Group sister companies extends well beyond the C295. CAE provides simulators and training systems for the A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) and maintenance training systems for the A400M new-generation airlifter, as well as a range of training devices for Airbus Helicopters military and commercial rotorcraft. CAE also works closely with Airbus Commercial to provide commercial aviation training equipment and services for airline pilots.
