American airframe maker, Boeing and Montreal-based global training systems integrator CAE  today signed Teaming Agreements to expand multi-mission platform collaboration in Canada, Germany and Norway.

These agreements utilise the complementary capabilities of each company to provide superior management, technical and cost-effective training solutions for the P-8A Poseidon programme, said CAE.

“Mission success depends on advanced preparation and rapid response,” says CAE Defense & Security President, Daniel Gelston. “As a premier provider in flight training and simulation, we have to leverage industry collaboration to create an agile network of proven training, simulation and in-service support solutions to deliver critical readiness for defence forces worldwide.”

“These agreements aim to advance mission readiness for defence customers operating Boeing P-8 aircraft,” said Boeing Vice President And General Manager, Government Services, Torbjorn Sjogren,. “Working together, Boeing and CAE can deliver outcome-based pilot and aircrew training, maintenance ground school, in-service support, and instructor training at the point of need”.

As a member of Team Poseidon in Boeing’s Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft (CMMA) offering, CAE is part of a Canadian P-8 industrial footprint that builds on 81 Canadian partners to the platform.

This collaboration amplifies a long-standing relationship spanning commercial and defence portfolios across the globe. For more than a decade, CAE has delivered operational flight trainers on the Boeing P-8A platform supporting the US Navy, Royal New Zealand Air Force and United Kingdom Royal Air Force. –shp/cae/nz (Image: CAE)
