Canada is considering qualified suppliers for the Future Aircrew Training Program (FAcT) – a generational training and in-service support program for the Royal Canadian Air Force. One of those suppliers is a Canadian-based solution called SkyAlyne – a partnership between CAE and KF Aerospace, two Canadian aviation and defence leaders.

In this episode of Vanguard Radio, we will hear from two members of the SkyAlyne team.  Joining us is Abir Kazan, capture manager for SkyAlyne, serving as the company’s main point of contact with the Government of Canada and guiding a diverse team of experts through the process of creating SkyAlyne’s solution for FAcT. Abir has more than 20 years of experience navigating complex defence proposals and contracts for CAE. 

The other guest is Peter Fedak. Peter spent 25 years as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Peter was helicopter pilot with the RCAF, serving in Haiti and Afghanistan, and a Qualified Flying Instructor of the highest order, posted in various locations including Fort Rucker, Alabama, and as the Commandant of 3 Canadian Forces Flying Training School at Southport, MB. Following his retirement from the RCAF, Peter became the Site Manager for the contractor at Southport – KF Aerospace – a position he holds today.  

Our guests will talk about their solution for this major government/military procurement, the benefits for Canada including jobs, Indigenous communities and as a home-grown innovation driver. They will touch on incumbency, in-service support and lasting community relationships.
