The newly added, CAE-built FFS is located at Bombardier's training centre in Dallas, Tex. and was installed in March 2013. This addition boosts OEM-backed Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft flight training and maintenance training, currently offered at Bombardier's training centre in Montreal, Canada. Bombardier Aircraft Training is planning multiple certifications for the new simulator, in support of its business aircraft customers. The FFS will be ready for training in June 2013.

"Bombardier continuously evaluates its worldwide training footprint to maximize availability and convenience for its business aircraft customers," said Leon Botteron, General Manager, Aircraft Training, Bombardier Aerospace. "We continue to leverage the latest technology and our instructors' real-word experience to provide quality, OEM-designed training in both Montreal, Canada and Dallas, Texas."

Bombardier is one of the only business jet manufacturers which provides training on its own aircraft programs. Bombardier uses custom, state of the art classroom technology systems, a suite of high fidelity training devices and certified Level D Full-Flight Simulators to provide flight training and maintenance training to Learjet, Challenger and Global operators.

Bombardier operates two world-class training facilities – in Montreal and Dallas – and has a network of worldwide facilities through Authorized Training Provider (ATP) agreements. With real-world aircraft expertise, Bombardier's pilot and maintenance instructors train operators to help maximize the safety, efficiency and dispatch reliability of their Bombardier fleet.
