"Through our Authorized Training Provider (ATP) agreement with Bombardier, CAE will deploy a Bombardier Global 7500 FFS in the Middle East, a first outside of North America,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.

The new FFS will be ready for training in 2021 at the ECFT centre in Al Garhoud, Dubai.

This will be CAE’s third Bombardier Global 7500 FFS as part of its current ATP agreement with Bombardier. CAE already offers Global 7500 aircraft training at CAE Montreal and CAE Dallas training centres.

"We are proud to support this key milestone with CAE," said Andy Nureddin, Vice-President, Customer Response, Bombardier Aviation.

"(It) provides Bombardier customers with the highest fidelity training for the Global 7500 aircraft."
