CAE to de­liver train­ing ser­vices for NATO E-3A AWACS air­crews


CAE has an­nounced that it has signed a con­tract with the NATO Sup­port and Pro­cure­ment Agency (NSPA) to pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive train­ing ser­vices, in­clud­ing in­struc­tors, for the NATO E-3A Air­borne Warn­ing and Con­trol Sys­tem (AWACS) air­crew train­ing pro­gramme lo­cated at NATO Air­base Geilenkirchen in Ger­many.

The new con­tract, with op­tions to ex­tend up to five years, ex­pands on the pre­vi­ous con­tract for CAE to pro­vide main­te­nance and sup­port ser­vices on the E-3A flight deck sim­u­la­tor and flight train­ing de­vice. In ad­di­tion to con­tin­u­ing to main­tain and sup­port the train­ing de­vices, CAE will now pro­vide air­crew in­struc­tors, mission sim­u­la­tor op­er­a­tors, course­ware de­vel­op­ment and crew re­source man­age­ment train­ing.

“We are pleased to ex­pand our re­la­tion­ship with the NATO E-3A Com­po­nent and now pro­vide in­te­grated train­ing ser­vices to sup­port the mission train­ing of NATO E-3A air­crews,” said Marc-Olivier Sabourin, CAE’s Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, Europe/Africa. “This pro­gramme is an­other ex­am­ple of CAE lever­ag­ing its train­ing sys­tems in­te­gra­tion ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise to help our de­fence cus­tomers en­hance safety, ef­fi­ciency and readi­ness.”

CAE has been in­volved with the NATO E-3A train­ing pro­gramme since de­liv­er­ing the CAE-built E-3A flight deck sim­u­la­tor in 1982. Since that time, CAE has pro­vided main­te­nance and sup­port ser­vices, as well as a range of sim­u­la­tor up­grades and mod­i­fi­ca­tions. CAE will now pro­vide a cadre of in­struc­tors and mission sys­tem op­er­a­tors to sup­port the de­liv­ery of train­ing to NATO E-3A AWACS air­crews.
