CAE has signed an agreement with African-based Caverton Helicopters to provide training centre operation services over six years. The first training centre will be in Lagos, Nigeria and is scheduled to be ready for operation in mid-2015. CAE will be providing turnkey solutions that include the start-up, maintenance and operation of the training centre. The Lagos centre will have six simulator bays and it will be one of the first complete commercial aviation training centres in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The centre will be equipped with a CAE 3000 Series AW139 full flight simulator (FFS), a CAE 7000XR Series Boeing 737 NG FFS and two CAE Simfinity Integrated Procedures Trainers (IPTs).
