Toronto, ON — Dec. 13, 2001– CAE president and CEO Derek H. Burney officially opened the company’s state-of-the-art Toronto Aviation Training Centre in Mississauga, Ont., today. The centre, CAE’s first in Canada, will provide training to maintenance technicians as well as to North American pilots on four CAE full flight simulators, including a Dash-8, an Airbus A320 and an Airbus A330/340.
Less than two years ago, the company decided to build on its core expertise as the world’s leading supplier of simulation equipment, to become a leading provider of aviation training services. With the launch of the Toronto centre, CAE now has a global network of nine aviation training centres, located around the world — six are already operating and three are under development. The Toronto Centre is located at 2025 Logistics Dr., Mississauga, Ont.
The training centres offer airline and business jet pilots as well as maintenance technicians a wide range of training — from full flight simulation to PC-based simulation.
CAE is a provider of simulation and control technologies for training and optimization solutions in aerospace, defence and forestry. Headquartered in Canada and operating globally, the company employs more than 7,000 people and has revenues in excess of C$1 billion.
