CAE gains approval and praise from Dassault during audit of Falcon Training Policy Manual quality system

CAE today announced that its training organization worldwide has passed the rigorous requirements of Dassault Aviation's Falcon Training Policy Manual (FTPM) quality system audit. This is the highest level 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. "The FTPM process is part of Dassault's team approach to achieving the highest safety standards and operational excellence for Falcon pilots, maintenance technicians, and other personnel," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO, Dassault Falcon. "CAE's policies, procedures and practices thoroughly address the standards and spirit of providing quality training to our aircraft operators." "CAE is proud to be Dassault's Falcon training partner across the range of their aircraft platforms," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "The comprehensive FTPM process is assurance to operators that their pilots and maintenance technicians will receive an enhanced level of professional training excellence." 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 for more than five years, CAE is regularly evaluated for compliance. CAE currently provides training for all in-production Falcon aircraft, including the Falcon 7X, Falcon 900 and Falcon 2000, as well as some earlier models such as the Falcon 10/100 and Falcon 50/50EX. 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. CAE is also the first to provide EASA- and FAA-approved simulator training of the new Dassault EASy II cockpit with the Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite.
