CAE today announced that it has established an industry record of 48 Level D full-flight simulators (FFS) sold during its fiscal year 2014 which ended on March 31, 2014.

 

The latest contracts, valued at a total of approximately C$75 million at list prices, include the sale of five simulators to customers in North America, Europe and India as well as update services. 

List prices include the value of OEM aircraft-specific data, parts and equipment (DP&E), normally procured by CAE in the manufacture of its simulators. In the case of these contracts, some customers are providing part of the OEM content.

"We continuously strive to be our customers' partner of choice for training solutions, and we're particularly proud to expand our relationships with existing long-standing customers like Southwest Airlines and Lufthansa Flight Training," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "Our record success this fiscal year is testament to the trust customers put in CAE and to the market leadership position we have earned over the last six decades."

CAE has sold a Boeing 737-800W FFS to Southwest Airlines. The CAE 7000 Series simulator will be delivered in calendar 2015 to Southwest's training centre in Dallas, Texas. It is the 8th CAE-built simulator purchased by Southwest. 

Lufthansa Flight Training GmbH (LFT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Group, has ordered an Airbus A320 full-flight simulator (FFS). The CAE 7000 Series simulator is equipped with the new CAE Tropos-6000XR visual system. Delivery of the simulator will take place before the end of 2014 to LFT's training centre in Frankfurt, Germany. Lufthansa has purchased more than 30 CAE Level D simulators since 1980.
