CAE also announced it is making good progress on construction of the new Dothan Training Center located at Dothan Regional Airport in Alabama. The state-of-the-art facility will provide training to more than 450 U.S. Army fixed-wing aviators annually, as well as providing training to U.S. Air Force C-12 aircrews.

"This turnkey training program will include live, virtual and constructive training that will provide the Army with a modern, flexible and cost-effective training solution specifically designed for the Army's fixed-wing community," said Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA. "Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training is exactly the kind of training systems integration program that CAE is focused on providing its military customers in the United States and around the world."

Under terms of the original contract, which was awarded as a base contract plus six one-year options through March 2024, CAE USA is constructing the new company-owned and operated training center in Dothan, which is near Fort Rucker, Alabama and the U.S. Army's Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) at Fort Rucker. CAE's Dothan Training Center to support Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training will be operational in early 2017 and ready for the start of training operations in spring of calendar year 2017.
