CAE first to offer maintenance training on new Dassault Falcon 2000 LXS and 2000S aircraft platforms

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - (NYSE:CAE)(TSX:CAE) - CAE today announced at the European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (EBACE) that it is the first to offer maintenance training on the new Dassault Falcon 2000 LXS and 2000S aircraft platforms, including EASy II.

Maintenance training on these platforms is supplemental to initial Dassault Falcon 2000 EX EASy certification and curriculum includes additional model-specific content. The solution is also mobile with the possibility of training being delivered at the customer site using CAE's mobile Simfinity(TM)-based classroom which reduces travel expenses.

"By working closely with Dassault, we are continuously refining our training programs in order to enhance the safety and efficiency of Dassault Falcon operators every day," said Rob Lewis, CAE's Vice-President and General Manager, Business Aviation, Helicopter and Maintenance Training.

Maintenance training on these platforms complements CAE's EASy II pilot training offering, which was recently qualified to Level D, making CAE the first training provider to deliver training with the latest EASy II avionics for the 7X and 2000 EASy series.

In early 2013, Dassault awarded all CAE business aviation training centres worldwide a Falcon Training Policy Manual (FTPM) certificate, which validates that CAE is delivering superior quality training services for Falcon pilots and maintenance personnel. The FTPM is the highest level attainable by a Dassault Authorized Training Provider (DATP).
