The CAE Dothan Training Center officially opened in March 2017.  The state-of-the-art Dothan Training Center is a 79,000 square-foot facility designed to provide comprehensive fixed-wing flight training to the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and other customers.  Located at the Dothan Regional Airport in Dothan, Alabama, CAE and its team of industry partners deliver academic (classroom) and simulator training at CAE's Dothan Training Center, and deliver live flying training at the adjacent Dothan Regional Airport.

Our Customers

The primary customer at CAE's Dothan Training Center is the U.S. Army.  Under the Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program, CAE is responsible for providing all the training required for experienced U.S. Army rotary-wing aviators transitioning to fly the Army's fleet of more than 350 fixed-wing aircraft. In addition, CAE is also supporting the Army's implementation of a new initial-entry fixed-wing (IEFW) training program so that entry-level Army students can begin their career track to fixed-wing aircraft much sooner. The Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program also serves as the formal training unit for recurrent training for the Army and U.S. Air Force C-12 Huron and other variants of the King Air aircraft such as the RC-12. In total, more than 600 U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force pilots will be trained annually. CAE is also able to offer training to other U.S. and international customers at the Dothan Training Center.

Full-Flight Simulators

CAE's Dothan Training Center houses four CAE 7000XR Series C-12 Huron full-flight simulators (FFSs), two of which are equipped with CAE's revolutionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit design allowing cockpits representing different configurations of the C-12 aircraft to be used in the simulator. When two of the cockpits are installed on the full-flight simulator mothership, the other two can be connected to a docking station and be used as Level 6-equivalent flight training devices. The CAE-built full-flight simulators at the Dothan Training Center will be qualified to Level D by the Federal Aviation Administration - the highest qualification for flight simulators. The CAE Dothan Training Center also includes two Grob G120TP flight training devices, one of which is an FAA Level 6-equivalent FTD.

Live Flying Training 

The comprehensive Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program features live flying training provided by CAE and its team of subcontractors. CAE is using company-owned Grob G120TP aircraft for a variety of live flight training, including Upset Recovery Training jointly provided by CAE and Aviation Performance Solutions (APS). In addition, a fleet of C-12U Huron aircraft owned and maintained by the U.S. Army is operated by CAE instructors to deliver live flying C-12 Huron training.
