CAE is to invest C$1 billion in innovation over five years to develop the aviation technologies of the future.
Headquartered in Avon Connecticut, United States, GlobalJet Services is recognised around the world for its services for both the business and helicopter segments.
This move expands CAE’s capabilities by increasing its aircraft platform addressability for maintenance training through world-class, regulatory approved training programs. CAE will also leverage its experience in pilot training to enable its rapid growth in the maintenance training market.
“We are thrilled to integrate GlobalJet Services’ capabilities and expertise in maintenance training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “This tuck-in acquisition is a great addition. Moving forward, CAE will be able to better serve global operators as they look for a one-stop-shop provider that can support their various aircraft fleet types.”
Moreover, the acquisition will provide CAE with approved training solutions on key programs and bring in a highly experienced team. Well-aligned with the culture of CAE, GlobalJet Services is known for its strong customer service culture and high degree of quality.
