CAE to Deploy its 1st Bombardier Global 6500 FFS in the Middle East

CAE announced today at the 2021 Dubai Airshow that it is expanding its pilot training capacity in the Middle East. Through its Authorized Training Provider (ATP) agreement with Bombardier, CAE will deploy a new Bombardier Global 6500 full-flight simulator (FFS) to the Emirates-CAE Flight Training Centre (ECFT) in Dubai.

“While travellers help fuel the recovery of the industry, as the training partner of choice, we place great importance on supporting the increasing training needs of business aviation pilots and operators across the globe,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Soutions. “A first outside of America, the brand new CAE Global 6500* FFS will heighten the pilot training experience in the Middle East and help strengthen business aviation pilots’ skills.”

“As aviation rebuilds, we continue to provide the latest training experience in the region and we are proud to add Bombardier’s new Global 6500 aircraft in the Middle East with our training partner CAE,” said Steve Allen, Executive Vice President at Emirates Group. “This addition will better serve the operators in the region with CAE’s cutting edge technology.”
