Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT), a joint operation of the Emirates Group and CAE, last week said they had received international accreditation for its Gulfstream 450/550 business jet training programs, achieving Level D status for its full-flight simulator. The organization's Gulfstream G550 sim met requirements established by the European Joint Airworthiness Authority (JAA) and the FAA, in addition to the United Arab Emirates' General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). The G450/550 training includes the same simulation software as in CAE's full-flight simulators while replicating the aircraft avionics suite, including Gulfstream's Plane View graphical display and Flight Management System software.

"Our new G550/450 training program has been extremely well received," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's group president, Innovation and Civil Training & Services. "We are proud to offer one of the most advanced G550/450 training programs to address the current boom in production of business aircraft and to provide training in locations most convenient to our customers." Emirates-CAE Flight Training is located near the Dubai International Airport and serves operators in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. In addition to the new Gulfstream 450/550 Level D device, the JAA and FAA have already approved the organization's training programs for the Gulfstream IV and V, Hawker 800/800XP, Boeing Business Jet and Airbus Corporate Jet.
