CAE announced today it has won a United States Air Force contract to design and manufacture a C-130H full-mission simulator for the Egyptian Air Force. The contract was awarded to CAE USA under the United States foreign military sale (FMS) program.
The value of the contract was included in the CAE press release dated June 16, 2010 as a sale to an undisclosed customer.
The C-130H full-mission simulator for the Egyptian Air Force will be delivered to Cairo, Egypt during 2013.
