CAE has inaugurated its Melbourne based pilot and maintenance training programs for the Hawker Beechcraft King Air 350 with ProLine avionics.

Central to the training programs is a CAE 5000 full-flight simulator qualified to meet Level D standards by CASA. The simulator will be used to train business aircraft operators and military pilots, CAE says.

“Australia has been strategically important to CAE for many years. We delivered our first simulator to the country nearly 25 years ago and since then we have sold more than 30 civil aviation and military simulators in the region. Today we provide training services in Sydney and Melbourne and operate two ab initio flight schools,” said Jeff Roberts, CAE’s Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. “Business aviation is an essential part of the transport system in Australia, and CAE is committed to offering its customers world-class training close to home.”
