For defence forces around the world, fast jet aircraft serve a variety of roles, including multi-role, air-to-air, air-to-surface and specialized training tasks. Today’s fast jet aircraft are highly complex, dynamic configurations with integrated avionics, mission computer systems, sophisticated sensor and weapon systems, and other advanced features. These specialized technical features and the wide-ranging operational uses of fast jet aircraft place unique demands on fast jet simulation and training.
CAE has designed and developed some of the most sophisticated training systems in the world for combat aircraft, and is a leading provider of training systems for lead-in fighter trainer aircraft such as the Aermacchi M-346 and BAE SYSTEMS Hawk 128.
