TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 12, 2019 — A CAE-built (NYSE: CAE) flight simulation platform for General Atomics‘ Predator B/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft has received approval from Italy’s air armaments and airworthiness directorate for use at Amendola Air Base, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

CAE said Feb. 5 its Predator Mission Trainer has been qualified to provide “zero flight time” training to the Italian air force in operating the Predator B, a year after the service began using the trainer’s Predator A variant.

“We believe this Predator Mission Trainer is the first Level D equivalent simulator for an unmanned aircraft,” added Gene Colabatistto, president of CAE’s defense and security group and a past Wash100 awardee.
