Raytheon unit gives maker of flight simulators $30m contract
Canadian flight simulator maker CAE Inc. said today that it received contracts worth $52 million from Flight Options, a unit of Waltham-based Raytheon Co., and Boeing Co.
CAE received a four-year $30 million contract extension from Flight Options, a fractional jet-ownership company, for pilot training through 2010.
Flight Options' pilots will receive training at CAE SimuFlite's Dallas-Fort Worth training center for its entire fleet -- including Beechjet 400As, Legacy Executive, Hawker 400XP, Hawker 800XP and Citation X aircraft.
The $22 million subcontract from Boeing calls for the design and development of upgrades and training devices for the Air Force's C-130 avionics modernization program.
