CAE (NYSE: CAE) has secured two long-term training services contracts with the U.S. Army and Canada’s air force worth approximately $760 million combined.
CAE said Thursday the contract with the Army will cover classroom, simulator and live rotary-wing flight training instructor support at the Army Aviation Center of Excellence in Alabama over a potential nine-year period through 2026.
The company added that the contract modification from Canada’s air force will potentially extend through 2024 the NATO Flying Training in Canada program in which CAE delivers ground-school classroom and simulator training and supports live flying training.
“We are honored the Royal Canadian Air Force has extended its contract with CAE, and that the U.S. Army has selected CAE once again as its training partner to support the instruction required for its new helicopter pilots, which follows our contract to provide fixed-wing flight training to Army aviators, ” said Gene Colabatistto, president of CAE’s defense and security group.
CAE noted that the Army contract is currently under review due to protests filed by other bidders.
