CAE, based in Montreal, announced Friday two contracts for full-flight simulators -- a CAE 7000 Series Boeing 737-800 simulator for Skymark Airlines and CAE 7000 Series Boeing 777-300ER simulator for Turkish Airlines.

The Boeing 737-800 FFS, as well as a brief-debrief station, will be delivered to Skymark's main base at Tokyo International Airport in Haneda, Japan, by the end of 2010, CAE said. Skymark currently uses a CAE-produced 737-800 FFS which was delivered last year. The simulator will incorporate a full six-degree-of-freedom CAE True electric motion system and new-generation CAE Tropos-6000 visual system, including liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) projectors and 200- by 40-degree field-of-view visual display. The simulator will be certified to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.

The simulator for Turkish Airlines will be delivered to the airline's Flight Training Center at Istanbul International Ataturk Airport in 2010, along with a CAE Simfinity Integrated Procedures Trainer (IPT) for the Boeing 737NG.
