CAE awarded contract for Boeing flight simulator
Feb. 19, 2010, Montreal - CAE today announced that it has sold a CAE 7000 Series full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Skymark Airlines. This contract, in addition to the contract announced today with Turkish Airlines, brings the total FFS sales that CAE has announced so far during fiscal year 2010 to 16.
The Boeing 737-800 FFS, as well as a brief-debrief station, will be delivered to Skymark's main base at Tokyo International Airport in Haneda, Japan by the end of 2010. Skymark currently uses a CAE-produced 737-800 FFS which was delivered last year.
"We are very pleased that Skymark Airlines has again chosen a CAE solution to meet their growing training requirements," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "Skymark's 'Safety First' management principle is reinforced by their emphasis on the highest-fidelity simulation to enhance pilot safety and operational efficiency."
The simulator will incorporate a full six-degree-of-freedom CAE True electric motion system and new-generation CAE Tropos-6000 visual system, including liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) projectors and 200- by 40-degree field-of-view visual display. The simulator will be certified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.
"Clearly we are quite satisfied with the performance of our first full-flight simulator and the best-in-class customer service we receive from CAE," said Shinichi Nishikubo, President and CEO of Skymark Airlines. "CAE has continued to enhance their 7000 Series product with new capabilities that address our training needs, and we look forward to taking quick delivery."
