Total tailored training solutions for E-3 aircraft

In 2021, CAE acquired L3Harris’ Military Training business, which included Link Simulation & Training and Doss Aviation. These businesses are now integrated with CAE USA as part of CAE’s Defense & Security business unit.

The legacy L3 Link Simulation & Training, now part of CAE USA, leverages experience and investments in the U.S. Air Force E-3 Contractor Training and Simulation Services (CTSS) program to offer a comprehensive and integrated learning environment that consistently produces highly qualified E-3 AWACS flight crew personnel. When combined with CAE’s experience supporting the NATO E-3A AWACS training program over the past 40 years, CAE is the world’s most experienced training provider for the E-3 airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft.

As the sole provider of E-3 aircrew training to the USAF, CAE USA now operates the contractor-owned and operated E-3 aircrew training center where more than 7,000 instructional hours are delivered annually.
