CAE announced today that it has delivered the first two of six new training devices to support comprehensive T-44C aircrew training services for the US Navy, Marine Corps and international students.

Earlier this year, CAE was awarded a long-term contract to provide T-44C aircrew training services under a contractor-owned, contractor-operated training services program. The Navy recently exercised the contract option for the second year of training services provided by CAE.

"Simulators are a critical component of our providing the best and fully trained aviators to the fleet in an efficient and cost-effective manner," said Rear Admiral Roy Kelley, Chief of Naval Air Training.

The new T-44C simulators were delivered in less than 12 months and feature a full-fidelity T-44C cockpit representing the latest digital glass cockpit avionics suite being used to upgrade the Navy's fleet of T-44C aircraft. The T-44C simulators include comprehensive visual and display systems that generate a realistic, immersive synthetic environment. The Navy uses the T-44C aircraft for multi-engine intermediate and advanced turboprop aircraft training.

Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA said, "We are pleased to deliver these new T-44C simulators, and look forward to continuing to enhance the overall T-44C aircrew training program with the latest synthetic training technologies that ensure concurrency with the aircraft.
