Boeing, CAE to Expand Poseidon Aircraft Training for Canada, Germany, Norway

Boeing and aerospace simulation provider CAE have signed an agreement to expand P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft training in Canada, Germany, and Norway.

Under the collaboration, the companies will combine expertise to deliver management, technical, and cost-effective training options for the P-8 program.

“These agreements aim to advance mission readiness for defense customers operating Boeing P-8 aircraft,” Boeing Government Services Vice President and General Manager Torbjorn Sjogren stated.

“Working together, Boeing and CAE can deliver outcome-based pilot and aircrew training, maintenance ground school, in-service support, and instructor training at the point of need.”

Supporting P-8 International Operators

According to Boeing, the agreement with CAE “amplifies” their long-standing relationship over different international defense and commercial products.

CAE has been delivering P-8 aircraft operational flight trainers to Boeing for more than 10 years.

Currently, the team supports Poseidon fleet training in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the UK Royal Air Force, and the US Navy.

“Mission success depends on advanced preparation and rapid response,” CAE Defense & Security President Daniel Gelston said.

“As a premier provider in flight training and simulation, we leverage collaboration to create an agile network of proven training, simulation and in-service support solutions to deliver critical readiness for defense forces worldwide.”
