SkyAlyne Canada

Our Mission

Deliver the highest calibre aircrew training to Canada and international partners.

Our Vision

Provide Canada and partner nations with the best aircrew training at the best value.

Our Offering

CAE and KF Aerospace bring together two Canadian companies with unmatched experience and capabilities in the delivery of pilot and aircrew training in Canada. Currently, CAE and KF Aerospace deliver all phases of pilot training to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) through the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) program managed by CAE, and the Contracted Flying Training and Support (CFTS) program managed by KF Aerospace.

The two companies will continue to manage these programs as currently contracted, while SkyAlyne focuses on building synergies between the two programs and ensuring the RCAF has access to world-class training to meet current and future needs.
