CAE to Provide Ab Initio Flight Training to German Air Force

The Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) has asked CAE GmbH to provide ab initio training services to the German Air Force.

The initial contract has a term of seven years and includes an option for an additional five years.

CAE is establishing a new training facility at Bremen airport in Germany to support the training of entry-level German Air Force aviators. CAE GmbH will have overall responsibility for providing academic, simulator and live-flying training to more than 40 student aviators in the first year.  A fleet of Diamond DA-40 and CAE-owned DA-42 aircraft will be used to fulfill single and multi-engine live-flying training requirements at both the CAE Bremen Training Centre as well as a training site in Montpellier, France operated by industry partner Airways Aviation. CAE GmbH will also leverage the established approved training organization (ATO) curriculum as well as instructors from CAE Civil.

The CAE Bremen Training Centre is being established with support from the local government and Bremen airport.  At the new facility, CAE will employ instructors, aircraft dispatchers, maintenance technicians and support staff to deliver ab initio flight training to the German Air Force.
