Manufacturer of simulation technologies, modelling technologies and training services to airlines and aircraft manufacturers, CAE, has inaugurated its first Gulfstream-dedicated aviation training centre.

CAE claims the new centre will be key to training more pilots and maintenance technicians over the coming decades.

The new centre has a capacity for up to four full-flight simulators (FFS) and is located near Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, US.

The first simulator, a Gulfstream G550 FFS, began operating in January, and the second, a Gulfstream G280 FFS, will be ready for training in July.

The maintenance technician training programme, which will include state-of-the-art virtual reality, will be offered on Gulfstream G280, G650, and G500/G600 business jets.

Marc Parent, CAE’s president and chief executive, said: “The inauguration of the CAE Savannah training centre is a significant milestone in terms of the advanced training and customer experience we offer to Gulfstream operators, making it more convenient than ever for their pilots and maintenance technicians to train with CAE.

“CAE Savannah is a showcase for innovation. Virtual reality, for example, will be used in both the theoretical and practical elements of our maintenance training programme.

“CAE Rise™ will also be used on all simulators, empowering instructors with technology that delivers insights and data to enrich simulator training for pilots.”

CAE now has five centres dedicated to business aviation training in the US in New Jersey, Nevada, Texas, Florida, Georgia, as well as its centre in Montreal, to round out its North American presence.
