MONTREAL—Flight simulator maker CAE Inc has sold six new simulators to customers in Asia and North America. The Montreal-based concern said the sales, together with simulator updates for a number of customers, are worth some $85 million at list prices. Overall, the company has sold 16 flight simulators to date in fiscal 2013.

CAE said Bombardier Aerospace is buying one of the simulators to support in the development of the Global(i) 7000(i) and Global 8000(i) aircraft program. The other simulators are: one Boeing 737-800 to Alaska Airlines; one A320 for the Asian Aviation Centre of Excellence in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and three simulators for the Zhuhai Flight Training Centre in China: an Airbus A330, a Boeing 737 and a Boeing 777.

“We are excited about supporting Bombardier once again in their new aircraft development programs using CAE’s unique simulation engineering expertise and we are very pleased to welcome Alaska Airlines as a new full-flight simulator customer,” said CAE spokesman Jeff Roberts.

CAE is a global leader in modelling, simulation and training for civil aviation and defence, employing some 8,000 people at more than 100 sites and training locations in about 30 countries.
