According to Montreal Gazette, CAE said that Ethiopian Airlines has ordered a Boeing 787 simulator while the Zhuhai Flight Training Centre of China has ordered a Sikorsky S-92 helicopter simulator. Two other simulators were ordered by an undisclosed customer in Africa.

Ethiopian Airlines, which purchased a Bombardier Q400 simulator in 2011, also ordered training devices and an upgrade for three full-flight simulators.

Meanwhile, the S-92 simulator will be the 26th CAE-built unit to be deployed at the Chinese training centre.

About halfway through its fiscal year, CAE has sold 27 simulators, with the company saying it expected to sell a record 40 units this year, up from 35 last year.
