CAE and Boeing strike new agreement to enhance P-8 training solutions for Canada, Germany, and Norway
Boeing and CAE recently signed a number of teaming agreements. These agreements will serve to expand multi-mission platform collaboration in Canada, Germany, and Norway. The complementary capabilities of each company will be used in providing superior management, technical, and cost-effective training solutions for the P-8A Poseidon program.
Torbjorn Sjogren, Boeing vice president and general manager, Government Services elaborated by saying, “These agreements aim to advance mission readiness for defence customers operating Boeing P-8 aircraft. Working together, Boeing and CAE can deliver outcome-based pilot and aircrew training, maintenance ground school, in-service support, and instructor training at the point of need”.
CAE is a member of Team Poseidon in Boeing’s Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft (CMMA) offering and part of a Canadian P-8 industrial footprint that builds on 81 Canadian partners to the platform.
Daniel Gelston, CAE Defense & Security president, explained that “Mission success depends on advanced preparation and rapid response. As a premier provider in flight training and simulation, we have to leverage industry collaboration to create an agile network of proven training, simulation and in-service support solutions to deliver critical readiness for defence forces worldwide.”
CAE has been part of a decades long relationship that spans commercial and defence portfolios around the globe. This new agreement further amplifies this relationship that has seen CAE deliver operational flight trainers on the Boeing P-8A platform supporting the U.S. Navy, Royal New Zealand Air Force and United Kingdom Royal Air Force.
