CAE has won a contract to provide the US Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) with Contract Instruction Services (CIS) that will support the delivery of ground-based training to the United States Navy.

Under terms of the five-year CNATRA CIS contract, which was awarded as a base contract with four one-year options, CAE USA will provide classroom and simulator instructors at five Naval Air Stations (NAS) to support primary, intermediate and advanced pilot training for the U.S. Navy, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

CAE USA will provide classroom and simulator instructors at five U.S. Navy training bases: NAS Whiting Field, Florida - training base for primary phase of training utilizing T-6B Texan aircraft; NAS Corpus Christi, Texas - training base for primary phase of training utilizing T-6B Texan aircraft; NAS Meridian, Mississippi - training base for intermediate and advanced phase of jet training utilizing T-45C Goshawk aircraft; NAS Kingsville, Texas - training base for intermediate and advanced phase of jet training utilizing T-45C Goshawk aircraft and NAS Pensacola, Florida - training base for naval flight officer (NFO) training.

The CNATRA CIS program provides classroom and simulator instructor support services for the primary phase of naval aviation training, which is the start of training for all future Navy pilots.  The CNATRA CIS program also supports intermediate and advanced strike training, which is the training pipeline for future fighter and attack, or "Tailhook" aviators; and NFO training, which provides the basic training for operating the advance systems onboard naval aircraft.  CAE USA already supports the training pipeline for advanced multi-engine training as part of the contractor-owned and operated T-44C Command Aircraft Crew Training program at NAS Corpus Christi.  The naval aviator training pipeline for rotary-wing is supported under a separate training support program.
