CAE Australia wins contract to support and upgrade RAAF’s AP-3C simulator

CAEjpgAt the Avalon Australian International Air Show, CAE announced it has recently been awarded a contract from the Commonwealth of Australia to provide maintenance and engineering support services for the Royal Australian Air Force’s AP-3C Advanced Flight Simulator (AFS).

Following a competitive tender, CAE Australia was selected to provide the on-site maintenance and support services for the AP-3C AFS, which is located at RAAF Base Edinburgh in Adelaide, South Australia and used to train RAAF aircrews.  In addition, CAE expects to provide a range of simulator upgrades, including a comprehensive upgrade of the visual environment.

“CAE Australia is an Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO) and already performs a range of service, support and engineering upgrades on in-service simulators for the Australian Army, Navy and Air Force, including the RAAF’s AP-3C Operational Mission Simulator used for mission crew training,” said Peter Redman, Managing Director of CAE Australia Pty Ltd.  “Though the AP-3C flight simulator was not manufactured by CAE, we have a wealth of experience on this platform and were able to offer the Commonwealth low-risk upgrade solutions and common engineering support services across platforms, which will help reduce costs.”
