Replace Existing Systems


To find a relevant, flexible, effective and affordable means of implementing and optimizing the training system to meet Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) pilot training objectives.


The project must ensure a seamless transition with existing pilot training programs and an agile and flexible production level to meet future needs. Risk will be managed and control of pilot production will be maintained by the RCAF. The training must meet the unique challenges of the Canadian environment, adapt and optimize to meet future requirements, exploit technical advances to maintain relevance, maximize simulation and emulation to create efficiencies and provide value for Canada. All training options are being considered, from DND acquisition with Industry sustainment to full Industry service contract.
