CAE USA has received a contract to provide classroom and simulator training for the US Navy’s UC-12 aircraft’s aircrews.

As part of the training programme, the company will provide initial and refresher training courses for naval pilots and flight officers.

The programme will include training on the King Air 200 Pro Line 21 and non-Pro Line King Air 200 cockpits, in addition to the King Air 350 Pro Line 21 and Fusion cockpits.

CAE USA president and general manager Ray Duquette said: “CAE has an unmatched ability to leverage a global network of training centres and training programmes.

“The award of this contract is a great example of CAE’s Defense and Civil business units working together to deliver a comprehensive training programme for the US Navy. We are particularly pleased that navy C-12 aircrews will be joining the army and airforce in training C-12 pilots at our Dothan Training Center in Alabama.”

Alongside Alabama, training will also be delivered at the firm’s facilities in Dallas, Texas, and Morristown, New Jersey.

The UC-12 is a military version of the Beechcraft King Air multi-mission aircraft.

Variants of the Beechcraft C-12 Huron are in service with the US Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps.

The navy uses the UC-12 to transport personnel and cargo, as well as for range clearance, medical evacuation, and humanitarian assistance.

The department’s UC-12B/F/M Huron is based on the King Air B200 aircraft, while its UC-12W Huron is as a modified version of the King Air 350.

In May last year, CAE was awarded a contract to deliver instructor support services for providing ground-based training to the US Navy.
