CAE, based in Montreal, announced a contract amendment with Gulf Aviation Academy (GAA) to provide a CAE 7000 Series Embraer 170/190 full-flight simulator (FFS). The change order amends a contract signed in June 2009 by GAA’s parent company, Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, and reflects their decision to switch an A330/340 simulator to an Embraer 170/190 FFS. The CAE 7000 Series Embraer 170/190 FFS will be delivered later this year to Gulf Aviation Academy’s new training centre, which currently includes a CAE 5000 Series A320 FFS with another CAE 5000 Series A320 FFS to be delivered soon. The Embraer 170/190 simulator will feature the CAE Tropos-6000 visual system and CAE True electric motion system.
