As part of its drive to produce the world’s first Dassault Falcon 7X training program, CAE (booth 1600) has created an advisory board. First meetings of the group – made up of representatives from the Montreal-headquartered company, Dassault and a number of operators - are due to take place in the USA and Europe early next year 2006.

Other recent milestones in CAE’s Falcon 7X program include completion of hardware for the first full-flight simulator, and ground-breaking at the new center in Morristown, New Jersey, where 7X training will be offered from the end of next year.

Morristown will initially house two full-flight simulators in addition to the already announced Falcon 7X and Falcon 900EX EASy and 2000EX EASy systems. CAE says the Sikorsky S-76 and Gulfstream IV units are to be moved there from Dallas, Texas to better meet market demand. Simulator installation will begin in mid-2006.

Morristown will open with six simulator bays, with potential for future expansion. CAE will then have a total of four business-aviation training centers around the world, the others being CAE SimuFlite in Dallas, Emirates-CAE Flight Training in Dubai, and Burgess Hill in the UK, future site for Falcon 7X training in Europe.
