It is the aim of every defence
organization to have capable and proficient pilots joining their ranks after
initial training, and ready to proceed to training on the operational aircraft
they will be assigned to fly. Developing the skills required of a military
pilot is becoming more complex and expensive as increasingly sophisticated
systems are introduced into today’s modern aircraft. In addition, the
world’s unpredictable geo-political and security environment results in an ever
growing assortment of mission parameters that future military pilots will need
to be prepared to operate in.
CAE offers a comprehensive
flight training organization (FTO) and all the required ab-initio training required
to produce highly qualified and proficient military pilots in an efficient,
safe and timely manner. The ab-initio training we provide includes academic
classroom training as well as simulation-based and live flying instruction so
new pilots can acquire the theory, knowledge and skills required.
As a global training systems integrator (TSI), CAE delivers a blended
approach to training future military pilots that prepares them to advance to an
operational conversion unit (OCU) and ultimately the combat aircraft they will
be assigned to operate.
Since October 2015, CAE has been the prime contractor responsible for the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) program that produces qualified military pilots for defence customers. The NFTC program significantly enhances CAE's core capabilities as a global training systems integrator (TSI), and expands its offering into support for live flying training of future military pilots, including next-generation fighter pilots, for the Royal Canadian Air Force and its allies...
