Enhancing Poseidon Aircraft Training: Boeing and CAE Collaborate to Meet Growing Demands from Canada, Germany, and Norway

Boeing and aerospace simulation provider CAE have entered into an agreement to expand training for the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft in Canada, Germany, and Norway. Through this collaboration, the companies will combine their expertise to offer efficient and cost-effective training options for the P-8 program.

“These agreements are designed to enhance the operational readiness of defense customers using Boeing P-8 aircraft,” stated Torbjorn Sjogren, Vice President and General Manager of Boeing Government Services. “By working together, Boeing and CAE can provide outcome-focused pilot and aircrew training, maintenance ground school, in-service support, and instructor training when and where it is needed.”

Supporting International Operators of the P-8 According to Boeing, this agreement with CAE strengthens their longstanding partnership across various international defense and commercial projects. For more than a decade, CAE has been supplying Boeing with operational flight trainers for the P-8 aircraft.

Currently, the team provides training for the Poseidon fleet in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the UK Royal Air Force, and the US Navy.
