Canadian simulator company CAE said it signed contracts to design and manufacture three CAE 7000 Series full-flight simulators (FFSs) and a suite of Boeing 787 maintenance training devices. The total value of the contracts is about $48.4 million. The company signed contracts with the FAA, Australian airline Virgin Blue, Air France and Japan Airlines. CAE will design and manufacture a CAE 7000 Series Airbus A330/A340 full-flight simulator for the FAA, which will be delivered in the summer of 2008 to the FAA's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City. The Boeing 737NG FFS for Virgin Blue will be delivered to a training center in Melbourne, Australia, later this year. This contract is CAE's first with Virgin Blue.
