NAV Canada and CAE Partner on Air Traffic Controller and Flight Service Training

NAV Canada and CAE Join Forces for Controller and Flight Service Training

NAV Canada and CAE have entered into a groundbreaking partnership aimed at bolstering the training infrastructure for air traffic controllers and flight service specialists in Canada. This alliance marks the first collaboration of its kind in the country, combining the strengths of NAV Canada, the nation's primary air navigation service provider, with CAE, a global leader in aviation training.

Scheduled to commence in the fall of 2024, the training will be conducted at the newly established Air Traffic Services Training Centre located on CAE's campus in Montreal. This facility is designed to provide state-of-the-art training environments that include both classroom and simulator sessions.

The partnership aims to significantly enhance NAV Canada's training capacity, accommodating over 500 additional students by 2028. This expansion is seen as crucial for keeping pace with the growing demands of the air traffic management industry, driven by increases in global air travel and evolving technological advancements.

Raymond G. Bohn, President and CEO of NAV Canada, highlighted the strategic benefits of the collaboration, noting that it is set to deliver substantial long-term advantages to the Canadian aviation sector. These include heightened job creation in high-paying sectors and bolstered national supply chain fluidity and responsiveness.

Marc Parent, President and CEO of CAE, reiterated the importance of this initiative, stating that the partnership extends CAE's mission of promoting global aviation safety through advanced training solutions. He emphasized that the collaboration is a strategic response to the pressing need for highly skilled aviation professionals capable of managing the complexities of modern air traffic systems.

As part of this initiative, NAV Canada will continue to operate its existing training programs at full capacity across its other facilities, ensuring that the high standards of its curriculum and testing are uniformly maintained for all incoming students. This approach guarantees that the quality of training remains consistent, irrespective of the training location, thus maintaining the integrity and safety of Canada's air navigation services.
