Babcock to present at the Aerospace and Defence Forum 2020

Babcock is pleased to announce that Miguel Bernard will be a featured speaker at this year’s Saskatchewan Aerospace and Defence Forum taking place on March 3rd in Saskatoon.

Miguel will provide an overview of Babcock’s involvement within the Canadian aviation sector and how through the combination of our global expertise and the leveraging of local knowledge, we are able to provide an exceptional Canadian delivery. 

This event is a great opportunity for businesses to network and meet with leaders within the aerospace and defence industry. With more than 100 years of military aviation experience, Babcock is a leading global provider of aeronautical services. We posses the capabilities to provide a wide range of aerospace training services, including technical training, developing training materials, and maintaining training and simulation equipment. Babcock’s aviation experience and expertise enables us to provide the globally recognized military flying training and improve on-going operations by creating efficient and effective training solutions.

Babcock operates 10 aeronautical maintenance centres in 7 countries, employing over 2,400 aircraft technicians and engineers. We train an estimated 20,000 military cadets and flying students per year, with a total of 68,500 training hours delivered in 2018.

Babcock is a primary provider of military flying training to Canada’s allies, we provide 70% of all UK Ministry of Defence flying training hours and delivered 11,000 military flying training hours to the French Air Force.

Babcock’s pilot-centric training prepares pilots through the use of both ground and air-born based training systems to prepare them better and faster than traditional methods, and leading to a higher pilot retention rate.

In 2018, Babcock was identified as a qualified suppliers for the Future Aircrew Training Program (FAcT) Contract by the Government of Canada. FAcT will renew aircrew training services to help maintain a multi-purpose and combat capable air force. It includes pilot training delivery, in addition to aircrew training for air combat systems officers and airborne electronic sensor operators, and is expected to be awarded in 2021.
