CAE GmbH will now support initial flight training for German Air Force airmen at two sites, including a new CAE Bremen training center in Germany.
New facility in Bremen to host academic, simulator and live flight training for over 40 student aviators in the first year.
CAE’s German subsidiary is to set up a new facility at Bremen Airport after the company announced it had been awarded a contract to provide initial flight training for the German Air Force.
CAE said Feb. 1 that “CAE GmbH will have overall responsibility for providing academic, simulator, and live flight training to more than 40 student aviators in the first year.”
A fleet of CAE-owned Diamond DA-40 and DA-42 aircraft will meet single-engine and multi-engine live flight training requirements at CAE’s Bremen training center and at a training site in Montpellier, France, which is operated by industry partner Airways Aviation.
A seven-year contract from German defense procurement agency BAIINBW includes an option for an additional five years.
CAE previously designed and manufactured all Tornado aircraft combat and flight simulators for the German Air Force and the company continues to provide upgrades and on-site training support services.
