"Australia is one of CAE's home markets and the opening of our new Canberra office signals a new chapter in our commitment to the Australian Defence Force," said Bell. 

"We will now be co-located with Defence in the heart of Australia's capital, which we believe will help us be more available and responsive in supporting the training needs and requirements of the ADF. As a world-class training systems integrator and long-term services provider, CAE has a lot to offer in supporting the training of the men and women of the ADF while contributing to enhancing safety, efficiency and readiness."

Across CAE's defence, civil aviation, and healthcare business units, the company employs approximately 300 people at almost 20 sites across Australia. 

CAE is the largest provider of aerospace simulators and support to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and provides a range of training services on platforms such as the KC-30A, C-130J, MH-60R, MRH90, Hawk Mk127 and others. CAE is the prime contractor on the Maintenance and Support of ADF Aerospace Simulators (MSAAS) contract as well as the Aerospace Simulation Through Life Support (ASTLS) contract.

Minister Pyne said the new office will support CAE's ambitions to grow its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region.

"CAE Australia is a recognised and capable training systems integrator. They support a range of Defence platforms, including helping use simulation-based training to cost-effectively enhance safety and readiness," Minister Pyne said.

"CAE has made Australia the headquarters of its activities for the Asia-Pacific region. This demonstrates the competitiveness of Australia’s defence industry in the region."
