CAE ‘here to stay’ as it builds trust with government

CAE Middle East and Asia-Pacific defence and security vice president and general manager Ian Bell has said the firm’s forward looking strategy globally and in Australia will focus on the long-term and building trust with governments on outsourcing trends.

Bell told Defence Connect the flight training industry, like many other defence-related enterprises, had seen some increasingly notable challenges around whether to outsource certain business operations or to keep them in-house.

"I think governments globally have so many different priorities: healthcare, education, infrastructure projects and such, that the ministry of defence are part of that dilemma," he said.

"[But] I think governments are becoming smarter, and it's not that they weren't smart in the first place, but I think technology and companies like CAE are starting to gain trust in areas."

He said that CAE, for its part, could benefit from taking its skillsets from commercial aviation.

"Many commercial companies have already outsourced in total their flying training, for example, and I think as we build credibility in other parts of the world, and indeed here in Australia, the government will become more comfortable with industry," he predicted.

"That's good for us, but it's all about trust; it's all about long-termism. I'm not interested in short-termism, I'm here to stay and so is CAE."
