CAE To Supply Four New Level D Sims

Varied Customers Order FFS For A320, B737, Bell 412

CAE announced Wednesday it has sold four CAE 7000 Series Level D full-flight simulators (FFS) and associated training devices with a total list price of approximately $63 million. The sims include an Airbus A320 FFS to Aeroflot, the largest airline of the Russian Federation; an A320 and a Boeing 737 to the Zhuhai Flight Training Center (ZFTC), a joint venture of China Southern Airlines and CAE; and a Bell 412 helicopter FFS to an undisclosed customer. These sales were booked during the first quarter and bring the company's total FFS sales announced during fiscal 2012 to 11.

CAE 7000 Series

"These new simulators reflect the continued growth of aviation in emerging markets in Russia and China and further expand CAE's global presence in the airline and helicopter markets," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "CAE's complete portfolio of training solutions provides our customers with the technology advantage to enhance the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of their flight operations."

The A320 FFS will be delivered to Aeroflot's training center at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow by the end of 2011. The simulator will incorporate a next-generation CAE Tropos visual system and full six-degree-of-freedom CAE True electric motion system. It will be certified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.

These additional FFSs will bring the total number of simulators installed or committed in the two facilities of the Zhuhai Flight Training Center to 19. ZFTC is the largest independent aviation training center in China. The agreement also includes CAE Simfinity integrated procedures trainers (IPTs) and CAE Simfinity Virtual Simulators (VSIMs) for A320 and B737 training. The FFSs, IPTs and VSIMs will be ready for training in 2012.The Bell 412 simulator was sold to an undisclosed customer and will operate from CAE's recently announced training center in Toluca, Mexico when it opens in 2012.

The company employs more than 7,500 people at more than 100 sites and training locations in more than 20 countries, and trains more than 80,000 crewmembers each year.
