by CAE

Geneva, Switzerland, May 24, 2016  (NYSE: CAE; TSX: CAE) - CAE announced today at the 2016 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) that its business aviation Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) program is ready for training, reaffirming its leadership position in helping prevent Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I). The course curriculum has been updated and business aviation CAE instructors have completed training earlier this month in accordance to EASA regulations. In order to support the needs of its customers, CAE offers customized recurrent training and operator conversion courses to meet UPRT regulatory requirements.

Flexible and Comprehensive UPRT Solutions
CAE has developed recurrent curriculum designed to meet the prevention and recovery requirements of EASA and offers customized training programs to meet the safety goals and local regulatory requirements for its customers. CAE has been working closely with customers to amend and get subsequent regulatory approval on their UPRT compliant training programs.

A large focus of preparations has been on flight instructor training. Instructors from CAE attended an Instructor Upset Delivery Training program that includes ground school, simulator and in-aircraft training.

"As a leader in UPRT training, we felt it was extremely important to make sure our instructors are properly prepared to teach the appropriate procedures and techniques to our customers," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "That's why we invested in a robust training program so that we can provide the best upset prevention and recovery training in the world."

Last year, CAE had announced early adoption of industry standards to help prevent Loss of Control In Flight (LOC-I), through the qualification of the world's first simulators equipped with EASA-approved, FAA-approved and ICAO-compliant Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) instructor stations. With today's announcement, CAE reaffirms its leading position through the launch of the business aviation UPRT program.
