Outstanding Training System Integration Project(Winner)

CAE U.S. Army Dothan Training Center

In March 2016, CAE USA was officially put on contract to provide Army Fixed-Wing Training. Then the challenge became executing on the contract within the time constraint. CAE needed to go from contract award to operational training in 12 months. That meant taking a green field – actually a peanut farm next to the Dothan Regional Airport – and constructing a new training center in under a year. And the training center building itself may have been the easy part – the facility needed academic classrooms, high-fidelity simulators and training devices, a new fleet of aircraft, and the supporting infrastructure in order to deliver world-class training. CAE beat the schedule by a month, starting training in February 2017. The CAE Dothan Training Center is a company-owned and company-operated training center, and the Army pays for a service.

The Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program provides training for experienced Army rotary-wing aviators transitioning to fly the Army’s fleet of more than 350 fixed-wing aircraft. A new part of the training program, the Initial Entry Fixed-Wing (IEFW) course, allows entry-level Army students to begin their career track to fixed-wing aircraft much sooner.  Overall, more than 600 pilots will be trained annually. CAE is also able to offer training to other U.S. and international customers
