For decades’ transport and tanker aircraft have been used globally by defence forces for combat, humanitarian missions, disaster relief, medevac and air drop missions. These aircraft have the capacity to transport troops, military equipment and other oversized cargo quickly and efficiently into almost any area. Tanker aircraft, with their air-to-air refueling capabilities, play a key role supporting combat and other aircraft by extending and executing strategic missions.

CAE has designed and delivered more training systems than any other company for transport and tanker aircraft, such as the C-130H/J, C-5, C295, A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT), A400M and others. In fact, CAE has delivered more training systems for the venerable C-130 Hercules aircraft and its many variants than any company.

CAE is currently the prime contractor on the United States Air Force (USAF) KC-135 Aircrew Training System program, providing turnkey training services to more than 3,700 pilots, co-pilots and boom operators annually. CAE has delivered state-of-the-art training systems for Australia’s KC-30A tanker and since the late 1990’s, CAE has been Lockheed Martin’s partner and major supplier on a range of C-130J training programs around the world.

CAE has a unique training systems integrator (TSI) capability and we are committed to providing transport and tanker pilots with leading-edge training solutions and services to meet their varied and demanding training needs.
