Dassault renews CAE as an Authorized Training Provider
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, November 17, 2015 (NYSE: CAE; TSX: CAE) - CAE and Dassault announced today at the annual Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA 2015) that, after a rigorous audit, Dassault Aviation has renewed CAE's Certificate of Approval as an Authorized Training Provider in accordance with the Falcon Training Policy Manual (FTPM). This is the highest level of certification attainable by a flight training organization. The audit is part of the Dassault Authorized Training Provider authorization program designed to assure quality training services for all Falcon-affiliated personnel.
"We are honored to have our Authorized Training Provider Certificate renewed," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "The audit process affirms our commitment to delivering excellent training to Dassault Falcon operators around the world."
The Dassault FTPM program periodically evaluates a training provider's organization and processes, training course development and standardization, flight simulation training device qualification, ground school and flight instructor certification, trainee completion standards, quality management system, regulatory approvals and other requirements. As a Dassault training partner, CAE is regularly evaluated for compliance.
CAE currently provides training for all in-production Falcon aircraft, including the Falcon 7X, Falcon 900EX EASy and Falcon 2000EX EASy, as well as some earlier models such as the Falcon 10/100 and Falcon 50/50EX. CAE was also named the exclusive training provider for the new Falcon 5X. CAE Dassault Falcon training programs are available in the Middle East, Europe and North America and are qualified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other regulatory authorities.
