CAE sold four CAE 7000 Series Level D full-flight simulators (FFS) and associated training devices with a total list price of $63.4 million: an Airbus A320 FFS to Russian airline Aeroflot; an A320 and a B737 to the Zhuhai Flight Training Centre (ZFTC), a joint venture of China Southern Airlines and CAE; and a Bell 412 helicopter FFS to an undisclosed customer.

The A320 FFS will be delivered to Aeroflot's training centre at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow by the end of 2011.

The agreement with Zhuhai Flight Training Center includes CAE Simfinity integrated procedures trainers (IPT) and CAE Simfinity Virtual Simulators (VSIM) for A320 and B737 training. The FFSs, IPTs and VSIMs will be ready for training in 2012.

The Bell 412 simulator was sold to an undisclosed customer and will operate from CAE's recently announced training centre in Toluca, Mexico, when it opens in 2012.
