SkyAlyne truly Canadian training

SkyAlyne is a partnership between KF Aerospace and CAE, formed to provide a truly Canadian solution for Canada’s Future Aircrew Training (FAcT) Program.

SkyAlyne is one of three pre-qualified bidders for this multi-billion-dollar training program, working the last two years in preparation for the formal RFP expected to be released this fall. When selected as the successful bidder for FAcT in 2024, Canadian-based SkyAlyne will maximize the long-term economic benefits for Canada’s workers, communities and Indigenous communities and preserve our long-standing reputation for Canadian military aviation excellence.
