In Québec, aerospace activity is so intense and diversified that training is offered even in the most advanced and sought-after specialties!


For example, Montréal’s CAE Open a new windowprovides industry-leading modelling, simulation and training services for pilots. The company recently announced that, in the next five years, it would invest $1 billion in a digital intelligence project Open a new windowto revolutionize pilot and aircrew training.


Thanks to this investment, carried out in partnership with the governments of Canada and Québec, CAE will move to the next level by using new technologies such as AI, Big Data and augmented reality
