Posted 23 April 2013 · Add Comment

Emirates-CAE Flight Training has announced a number of major certification successes for its unique dual-configuration full-flight simulator for Bombardier Challenger 604 and Challenger 605 business jets.

Certification has been received from the United Arab Emirates General Civil Aviation Authority (UAE GCAA), the General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia (GACA), and the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA), as well as from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HK CAD), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The CAE-built simulator is located at Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) in Dubai.

“The multiple certifications and proximity to Asia allow us to serve our customers close to where they operate,” said Walter Visser, managing director of Emirates-CAE Flight Training and CAE business leader Middle East & India.

“We expect this platform to be very successful and a great contributor to the training requirements of Challenger 604 and Challenger 605 aircraft operators.”

It was previously announced that CAE has signed a long-term agreement with Qatar Executive, Qatar Airways’ corporate jet subsidiary, which will be the anchor customer and first to train pilots on the Challenger 605 jet.
