The Canadian Future Aircrew Training Program

The Future Aircrew Training (FAcT) Program looks to renew aircrew training, maintenance and infrastructure services to help Canada maintain a multi-purpose and combat capable air force. The program will include delivery of pilot training as well as aircrew training for Air Combat Systems Officers and Airborne Electronic Sensor Operators — with an expected contract period of 20+ years.
