CAE Celebrates 60 Years of Innovation and Launches CAE 5000 Series Full-flight Simulator

the CAE 5000 Series full-flight simulator. This new product addresses training requirements for high-volume commercial narrow-body aircraft such as the B737 and the A320, as well as the business jet market including the emerging Very Light Jets(VLJs).

"Lufthansa Flight Training has been intimately involved in the product definition and design of the CAE 5000 Series, as part of CAE's customer and technical advisory boards," said Florian Hamm, CEO of Lufthansa Flight Training GmbH. "LFT is well known as a front-runner in implementing innovative technology. We are looking forward to having a 5000 Series simulator ready for training at our training centre in Berlin in 2008."

"The 5000 Series represents a breakthrough in innovative design," commented Jacques Drappier, Airbus' Vice President, Training and Operations. "It will serve well the training requirements of the customers of the CAE-Airbus training cooperation."

The new CAE 5000 Series is a complementary product between the CAE Simfinity(R) line of training devices and CAE's existing, customized Level Dsimulator, which has also been enhanced and upgraded with the latest technologies and is now called the CAE 7000 Series.

CAE 5000 Series simulators for both the B737NG and Airbus A320 will be available in early 2008. List prices will depend on the aircraft platform and configuration, and will range from C$8 to C$11 million.
