Shanghai, China Gulfstream G450/G550 FFS Certified To Level D

Highest Level Of Certification Offered By The CAAC

A Gulfstream G450/G550 full-flight simulator (FFS) in Shanghai, China, built by CAE has received Level D certification, the highest-fidelity certification, by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). The training program will be offered at the Shanghai Eastern Flight Training Center (SEFTC), in Shanghai Pudong Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone starting in early 2013. Shanghai is CAE's tenth business aviation training location worldwide.

"We have been serving the aviation community in China for more than 20 years; we've sold more than 65 commercial aviation simulators to airlines in China over the years and we operate one of the largest training centers in China; we are pleased to expand our presence and to now offer business aviation training," said Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "China and other areas of Asia are emerging as business aviation growth markets, and we are leveraging CAE's long history in the region to bring training and services close to where our customers operate."

The G450 / G550 pilot training programs will feature standard CAE courseware in Mandarin as well as English. SEFTC is China Eastern Airlines' training center. It also operates 11 CAE-built FFSs for Airbus and Boeing aircraft types.

Other CAE business aviation training programs announced and to be offered in Asia in the future include the Bombardier Global 5000, Global Express, Global Express XRS and Dassault Falcon 7X.
