Paris-based operator Masterjet has signed a long-term agreement with CAE for the training of its pilots in Dubai, UAE, as well as at centres near London, New York and Dallas.

The deal covers the company's Cessna CJ3, Falcon 7X, 900 and 900EX EASy aircraft types.

"CAE meets the very high standards we have with regard to meticulous safety and application of advanced technology to the training programme," says Philip Queffelec, president of Masterjet. "The flight training our pilots receive will help us to continue to provide exceptional service to our clients."

"Masterjet's passion for safety and customer service is well respected in the business aviation community," says Camille Mariamo, CAE regional leader, Middle East and India.

Masterjet signed the agreement at the EBACE show in Geneva, where CAE also hosted a number of other operators booking training services. These included Vienna-based Avcon Jet top management of ceo Alexander Vargas, flight operations director Aleksander Radanov and coo Maximillian Maruna, who selected CAE for training on the Challenger 300, 604 and 605, Citation CJ and XLS, Falcon 2000EX EASy, Gulfstream G150, G200 and G550, and Hawker 800.

Geneva's own Dasnair dispatched crew training manager Bruno Desmeules and general manager Angelo Conti to do the deal for its Falcon 7X and 2000EX EASy pilots; while Antwerp-based Flying Group were represented by training manager Walter Dierick, training assistant Ulla De Spiegeleire and coo Frans Dechaene arranging training for its fleet of Cessna, Dassault and Gulfstream aircraft.
