CAE has sold three full-flight simulators (FFSs) to different buyers - comprising an Airbus A330 FFS to Aeroflot, a Boeing 787 FFS to Air Canada, and a Boeing 737NG FFS to Kunming Aviation Safety Training Centre in China.

The A330 FFS belongs to the CAE 7000 Series and will be delivered to the Aeroflot training centre at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow in 2013.

The CAE 7000 Series FFS for the Boeing 787 will be delivered to the Air Canada training centre in Toronto in 2013, along with two integrated procedures trainers (IPTs) and two virtual maintenance trainers (VMTs).

The Boeing 737NG CAE 7000 Series FFS for Kunming will feature a third-generation CAE Tropos-6000 visual system and will be delivered in 2013. This also marks CAE's first sale to Kunming.

The contracts are worth a combined total of more than Canadian dollars (C$) 50 million ($49 million) at list prices. They bring the number of FFS sales announced by CAE during fiscal year 2012/13 to seven.
