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. This partnership between two companies with strong footprints in military pilot training, ensures that the FAcT program will benefit from the expertise and innovation made of two global players, each of which has over 70 years of aircrew training experience delivered around the world.
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. The companies stand ready to offer an innovative and comprehensive turnkey solution to meet all of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s training requirements.
