Babcock Canada and Leonardo Canada have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to jointly pursue Canada’s Future Aircrew Training Program (FAcT) and to create a Canadian joint venture.

A modern air force needs an advanced training solution based on cutting-edge technology, focused on early streaming, and better output standards at lower costs. Babcock and Leonardo can offer a modern and comprehensive solution drawing on their long experience as leading providers of civil and military fixed-wing, rotary-wing and mission training services.

Leonardo, a world leader in the training sector, can cover the entire pilot training syllabus, allowing the training syllabus to be tailored to air force requirements. A complete Ground Based Training System (GBTS), which is perfectly integrated with the platforms and able to ensure both high quality training and strong operating efficiency, complements the aircraft. Platforms and systems offer customers a turnkey training solution that can guarantee the highest quality standards at every training stage.  Leonardo has built about 2,000 trainers that have been sold to more than 40 countries.

From basic to advanced flying training for air forces, navies and armies, Babcock delivers unrivalled technical instruction across multiple locations and aircraft types. Whether it is providing technical training instruction, developing training materials or maintaining critical training assets, Babcock is trusted by its customers to deliver world-class training solutions.

The Canadian government intends to procure a comprehensive aircrew training program that provides aircraft, ground based training systems, civilian instructors, as well as other essential services, such as air traffic control, aircraft and airfield maintenance, accommodation, and food services for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The 20-year contract, is expected to be awarded in 2023.
