First sales of the fiscal year welcome a new customer in Azerbaijan.
MONTREAL — Flight training and simulator company CAE Inc. sold six full-flight simulators to airlines in Azerbaijan and Turkey for $75 million.
The Montreal-based company said Azal purchased three devices for the Embraer 190 E-Jet, Sikorsky S92 helicopter and AgustaWestland AW139 helicopter. Turkish Airlines purchased simulators for the Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320 and Airbus A330 aircraft.
The six units, which are valued at $75 million at list prices, are CAE’s first simulator sales for the fiscal year, which began in April.
Azerbaijan Airlines is a new CAE customer, while Turkish airlines has previously used CAE’s training services.
The Embraer 190 simulator for Azerbaijan Airlines will be delivered in mid-2014, while the helicopter devices will be shipped in 2015.
The Turkish Airlines simulators will be delivered to the airline’s training centre in Istanbul later this year and in 2014.
