SOUP TO NUTS : SIMULATOR MANUFACTURING IS A LUCRATIVE BUT RISKY BUSINESS, WHICH IS WHY MARKET LEADER CAE HAS TAPPED INTO THE MORE STABLE WORLD OF FLIGHT TRAINING

This article profiles CAE Inc., a company that has made a move toward the flight training business in an effort to create a more financially stable flight training services company. CAE is attempting to include manufacturing of full flight simulators, flight training devices, and cockpit procedures training for regional and major airlines, as well as the corporate market worldwide. Although the company maintains a confident approach to its services and products, some analysts contend that CAE and other training houses face difficulties in penetrating the training departments of larger airlines because the training positions are typically highly coveted and held by influential union- represented senior pilots.
