MONTREAL, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - WHAT: Formal opening of CAE's (NYSE:CGT) (TSX:CAE) New Jersey-based business aviation training center serving pilots and student pilots from around the world. WHO: CAE is the leading provider of simulation technologies and integrated training services for civil aviation and defense customers worldwide. The company trains more than 50,000 pilots a year in 24 training centers located around the world. Its new business aviation training center will house six simulators and is the home of entitlement training for the new Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft, as well as training for Falcon 900EX EASy, Falcon 2000EX EASy, Gulfstream IV, and Sikorsky S-76 aircraft. The FAA-approved, full-motion simulators are an exact replica of the interior of aircraft cockpits and provide the highest- fidelity flight environment. The CAE SimuFlite North East Training Center (NETC), located at a prime business aviation hub, is the company's fourth business aviation training center in the world. The flight industry sets rigorous requirements to ensure pilot and passenger safety. Pilots must train and obtain certification for each model they fly and renew that certification every six months. In the business aviation world, where companies may own several types of aircraft, it is crucially important that the pilots constantly refresh their skills, through both classroom and simulator training.
