Furthermore, CAE unveiled its latest customer web portal upgrade, designed to further enhance customer experience.
“We are very proud of these recent wins which allow us to expand our presence in the business aviation training market and build on our longstanding relationships with our partners,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “It is also an honor to have received the endorsement of Dassault Aviation for our new UPRT program as it validates the hard work of our dedicated teams.

Building Customer Relationships: new business aviation training agreements
TAG Aviation Holdings, one of the premier management companies in Europe, as well as an undisclosed large fleet operator in Europe, have selected CAE as their training partner of choice for the provision of multiple training programs. Training will span across CAE’s global training network of heavy, mid, and light jets, including CAE’s newly launched Gulfstream 650 training program located in Dubai. Building on its existing relationship with Gama Aviation and other large fleet operators, these new training agreements strengthen CAE as a leader in the global business aviation training market.
