On May 4, 2022, the QAM Board of Directors accepted Mr. André Bourassa's offer to donate a flight simulator. This simulator was produced in 1958 by CAE Inc. in 12 copies for the Royal Canadian Air Force and intended for training in the procedures of the crews of twin-engine aircraft, mainly the Douglas C-47 Skytrain/Dakota and the Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar.

It should be noted that the simulator offered to the QAM was meticulously maintained in working order by Mr. Bourassa during the approximately forty years that it was in his possession. It is therefore an exceptional testimony to the aerospace industry in Quebec and Canada that the QAM is preparing to acquire.

This simulator should be exhibited to the public in Montreal starting this fall and its continued operation will be ensured thanks to the support of CAE, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

But the QAM is already looking for volunteers wishing to take part in the implementation and maintenance of this "Twin Engine" simulator. Technical training will be given to them by Mr. Bourassa who knows all the secrets. Feel free to contact us if this is of interest for you.

The officials of the Québec Aerospace Museum would like to thank Mr. André Bourassa for the donation of this simulator and CAE Inc. for its support of this project.

CAE represents 75 years of industry firsts—the highest-fidelity flight and mission simulators, surgical manikins, and personalized training programs powered by artificial intelligence. CAE equips people in critical roles with the expertise and solutions to create a safer world.
