Over the course of 70 years CAE has become a leading training systems integrator (TSI) and in recent years we have seen the size, scope, and complexity of our involvement in RPA/UAS training increase worldwide as unmanned systems take on a growing role for defence forces. We now offer classroom, simulator, and live-flying instruction to customers around the world, including the United States Air Force, for whom we train over 1,500 Predator and Reaper RPA pilots and sensor operators per year.

CAE is currently under contract to provide a comprehensive RPA training solution to the UAE Air Force. The TSI solution will include a training centre where all RPA type conversion and mission training will be conducted. CAE is designing and developing the courseware and comprehensive curriculum for academic and classroom training, including fundamentals courses for RPA pilots and sensor operators as well as courses specific to the UAE Air Force's medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) RPA platforms such as the General Atomics Predator family of RPAs. To support the ground-based training system, CAE is delivering a full suite of synthetic training equipment, including desktop trainers, sensor operator trainers, Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) mission trainers and high-fidelity, type-specific mission trainers.  In addition to delivering the classroom and simulator training, CAE instructors will provide the live flying instruction for UAE Air Force RPA aircrews.
