CAE Joins Boeing CHINOOK team for Luftwaffe Requirement

Company Leverages Existing Expertise with Bundeswehr Helicopter Fleet

CAE and Boeing signed a teaming agreement at the Royal International Air Tattoo in the UK on 13 July that commits CAE Elektronik GmbH to supporting the Boeing offer of the H-47 CHINOOK for the Luftwaffe’s Schwere Transporthubschrauber (STH – heavy-lift helicopter) requirement.

CAE Elektronik, based in Stolberg, Germany, will have responsibility for developing and supporting a range of aircrew training systems and services should the CHINOOK be selected by the Bundeswehr. The company is part of a group of German aerospace concerns that have partnered with Boeing as part of the STH competition to provide additional capabilities, value and local expertise to the highly efficient platform and logistics solution. Boeing announced its German industry team at the ILA Berlin Airshow in April.

CAE joins a strong team behind the Boeing CHINOOK offer to Germany and will provide flight simulation technologies and training support services.  CAE’s experience supporting the Bundeswehr with synthetic training solutions at the International Helicopter Training Centre in Bückeburg, as well as on other rotary-wing platforms, will help provide common and consistent training solutions across the helicopter platforms operated by the Bundeswehr.

CAE Elektronik GmbH has a long history of supporting the German Armed Forces with rotary-wing training and simulation solutions, and as a company CAE has a wealth of experience delivering training systems for the CHINOOK helicopter,” commented CAE’s Vice President and General Manager, Europe/Africa for CAE Defence & Security, Marc-Olivier Sabourin. “Our experience and training systems integration expertise is a perfect fit for Boeing’s offer of the technologically advanced, low-risk and proven H-47 for Germany’s heavy-lift helicopter requirement.”
