Caverton Helicopters to Train in New CAE Facility
CAE has signed an agreement with African-based Caverton Helicopters to provide training center operation services over six years. The pioneer training center will be located in Lagos, Nigeria and is scheduled to be ready for operation in mid-2015. CAE will provide turnkey solutions including the start-up, maintenance and operation of the training center. With its six simulator bays, it will be one of the first complete commercial aviation training centers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The center will be equipped with a CAE 3000 Series AgustaWestland AW139 full-flight simulator (FFS), a CAE 7000XR Series Boeing 737 NG FFS and two CAE Simfinity integrated procedures trainers (IPTs). These simulators were announced by CAE as sales to undisclosed customers in October 2013. In the past, Caverton pilots trained in centers in the U.S., UAE, Qatar, Brazil, Italy and Norway.
