DUBAI/KUALA LUMPUR, NOV 19, 2019: Global train­ing sys­tem inte­gra­tor, CAE announced an MOU with UAE-based MRO provider, Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Centre (AMMROC) to pur­sue train­ing sus­tain­ment ser­vices and off­set oppor­tu­ni­ties in the Middle East. The con­tract was inked dur­ing the run­ning of the Dubai Air Show. Under the terms of the agree­ment, both com­pa­nies will coop­er­ate on pro­vid­ing a range of train­ing sus­tain­ment ser­vices in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and oth­er loca­tions through­out the Middle East. The train­ing sus­tain­ment ser­vices will include main­te­nance and sup­port of sim­u­la­tors and train­ing devices, con­trac­tor logis­tics sup­port, course­ware devel­op­ment, and instruc­tors, all of which will pro­vide off­set oppor­tu­ni­ties to fur­ther sup­port local indus­try.

“This MoU rep­re­sents AMMROC’s con­tin­ued col­lab­o­ra­tion and invest­ments with lead­ing glob­al enti­ties in avi­a­tion and defence such as CAE. Long term part­ner­ships with our clients is the very basis of our busi­ness mod­el and we are keen to work along­side CAE to improve and diver­si­fy our capa­bil­i­ties through enhanced train­ing that equip local and inter­na­tion­al pro­fes­sion­als with the cut­ting-edge skills they need to face some of most demand­ing defence chal­lenges,” said Chief Executive Officer of AMMROC, Abdul Hakeem Al Muflahi.

Meanwhile, Vice President and General Manager, Defence & Security International, CAE,  Marc-Olivier Sabourin said: “This coop­er­a­tion with the lead­ing main­te­nance, repair and over­haul com­pa­ny in the region will help us grow our train­ing ser­vices in the UAE and the Middle East.”

“We are excit­ed to part­ner with AMMROC and con­tribute to devel­op­ing a high­ly skilled work­force local­ly that can meet the needs of mil­i­tary cus­tomers in the Middle East region.”

AMMROC is the only Lockheed Martin-approved C‑130 Hercules ser­vice cen­tre in the MENA region. The company’s solu­tions place it at the fore­front of the air­craft after­mar­ket indus­try, enabling the UAE and oth­er region­al air forces to main­tain oper­a­tional readi­ness, air­wor­thi­ness, and tech­ni­cal own­er­ship of var­i­ous rotary- and fixed-wing air­craft and plat­forms.

In addi­tion to its MRO solu­tions, the com­pa­ny retains com­pre­hen­sive capa­bil­i­ty to mod­i­fy plat­forms such as the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk heli­copter – one of the world’s most bat­tle-test­ed air vehi­cles – into mis­sion-ready, mul­ti-role com­bat heli­copters.

AMMROC is joint-ven­ture owned by EDGE and Lockheed Martin, and is part of the Platforms & Systems clus­ter with­in EDGE, an advanced tech­nol­o­gy group for defence and beyond that was inau­gu­rat­ed in November 2019.
