FX Orders 2 A380 Full Flight Simulators

Thu Jul 20, 2006 11:25 pm

Just released:

Quote:
FARNBOROUGH, July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - (NYSE: CGT; TSX: CAE) - CAE has won a contract from Federal Express (FedEx) to provide two Airbus A380 full-flight simulators and a suite of CAE Simfinity(R) training
devices. The contract brings the total full-flight simulator sales that CAE
has announced in fiscal 2007 to ten.

=========================================================

To put it this way: 2 FFS for 10 A380s, which are flying long-haul, makes 5 A380s per FFS, or very much over the thump 35 crews per FFS (I've assumed 7 crews for one A380). You cannot tell me that this crew/FFS ratio is healthy - I would thus assume that we will see FX place an add-on order in the near future.
Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8,B742/4,B762/763,B772,CR2,CR7,ER4,E70,E75,F50/70,M11,L15,S20

Yup, first thing I thought too!

Perhaps. Could they be looking at getting in on the training business for other airlines?

It obviously that the rumours of an impending A380 cancellation are true !
