The two CC-130J simulators are located at the new Air Mobility Training Centre (AMTC) at Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Canada.


"The Royal Canadian Air Force fully understands the value of simulation-based training, both for the cost benefits as well as the enhanced training and mission rehearsal capabilities it delivers," said Pietro D'Ulisse, CAE's Vice President and Military Business Leader – Canada. "By formally certifying its two CC-130J simulators to Level D, the Department of National Defence will receive the highest fidelity training systems for its forces."

CAE is the prime contractor for the Operational Training Systems Provider (OTSP) program, under which the company is providing a comprehensive aircrew training capability for Canada's CC-130J and CH-147F aircraft. At the new AMTC, CAE and its pan-Canadian team of subcontractors are delivering a full suite of CC-130J academic and synthetic training systems to be used for qualification, conversion, refresher, and mission rehearsal training. CAE will also provide 20 years of in-service support for the AMTC in Trenton.
