Poland: CAE has won a series of contracts valued at more than CAD 115 million to provide a range of simulation products and upgrades as well as professional and long-term support services. These include contracts to provide a C295 full-flight simulator to the Polish Air Force and contracts to support the New Zealand Defence Force's SH-2G (I) Super Seasprite synthetic training devices. The company believes that the CAE-built C295 simulator will support the training requirements of the Polish Air Force and be delivered in 2017 to Balice Krakow Air Base. The Polish Air Force has a fleet of 16 C295 aircraft used for national and international transport operations.
"Defence forces and original equipment manufacturers from around the world continue to turn to CAE for their training needs, and we are happy to add new platforms such as the SH-2G and Tiger helicopters to our portfolio. These orders show the continued focus by defence and security forces on expanding their use of simulation-based training,” said Gene Colabatistto, CAE's Group President, Defence & Security.
