Bell, CAE sign teaming agreement for US Army FLRAA and FARA training

The partnership will also see CAE provide maintenance training devices and other training products and solutions.

Bell Textron and CAE USA have teamed up for US Army Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) training.

As a member of Bell’s Team Valor and Team Invictus, CAE brings its technical experience in US Army Aviation training to support FLRAA and FARA programmes.

CAE Defense and Security president Daniel Gelston said: “FLRAA and FARA are critical for army modernisation.

“CAE’s digital technology and synthetic training environments partnered with Bell’s enhanced flight-proven platforms, the V-280 Valor and the 360 Invictus, deliver transformational capabilities to army aviation.”

The agreement will see CAE deliver maintenance training devices, courseware, procedural training solutions and interactive multimedia instruction for Bell’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) family of systems.

According to the agreement, CAE will host early V-280 Valor training at the company’s Dothan, Alabama Training Facility.

Army Aviators can access next-generation training capabilities at this advanced training facility.

Bell Advanced Vertical Lift Systems executive vice-president Keith Flail said: “Future Vertical Lift is ushering in next-generation capabilities to the US Army.

“CAE will provide soldiers the operability and maintainability knowledge base needed to successfully operate the V-280 Valor and 360 Invictus in contested environments.

“The addition of CAE to Team Valor and Team Invictus demonstrates not only Bell’s commitment to providing the Army the highest performance and flight-proven option to move FLRAA and FARA to programmes of record, but also to provide the best training solution possible to the warfighters.”

Delivering these advanced weapons systems calls for making sure that troops are fully ready to use this technology across multi-domain operations.
