Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc., a subsidiary of Bluedrop Performance Learning Inc. (“Bluedrop”) (TSX-V: BPL), was recently awarded two new contracts by Allied Wings, operators of the Contracted Flight Training and Support (CFTS) program, to develop Phase III Multi-Engine & Helicopter courseware. These projects are part of a larger scope of work that sees Allied Wings and Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc. providing the Royal Canadian Air Force`s Primary, Rotary Wing and Multi-engine Pilot training until 2027.
The CFTS Phase III Multi-Engine & Helicopter Pilot Training Courses train multi-engine and helicopter students to RCAF Wings standards and prepares the graduates of the program for follow-on flying training. The new program will be implemented at the Canada Wings Aviation Training Centre, a flight school led by Kelowna Flightcraft Ltd. and supported by Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc., Canadian Helicopters Ltd., and Canadian Base Operators. Located in Southport Manitoba, the 3 Canadian Flying Forces Flying Training School (3CFFTS), supported by Allied Wings, trains 80 per cent of the RCAF newly winged pilots. Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc. will be creating over 100 lessons in support of the CFTS Phase III training programs. The two projects are valued at $1.5 million. As the largest provider of courseware in Canada, Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc. can confidently develop the complex lesson plans the RCAF requires. This partnership will further enhance and improve the comprehensive training an RCAF pilot receives, ensuring all graduates are fully equipped to move onto the next phase of their careers.
“We are very pleased to be a member of the Allied Wings consortium supplying leading edge technologies to the air force” said Carl Daniels, Vice President of Business Development & Sales, Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc. “CFTS is one of our most integral projects and we look forward to supporting Kelowna Flightcraft and the Allied Wings consortium over the next two decades.”
