CAE Electronics is to supply an eighth Lockheed C-5B weapon system trainer to FlightSafety Services, for training US Air Force crews.

The contract is worth C$26.5 million ($18 million). The Level C-standard simulator will be delivered in early 2001. CAE supplied all seven C-5B trainers in service.

FlightSafety was awarded a 10-year extension of its C-5 aircrew training system contract in May. The deal, worth $240 million, includes an extra C-5B simulator for the US Air National Guard.

CAE, meanwhile, has received a contract from American Airlines for the third Boeing 737-800 simulator to be ordered under 1997's long-term supply agreement.
