A few days ago I was elated to hear from the European Training and Simulation Association about The CAE Story. There couldn’t be a more important such organization in the world, so how encouraging it is to have ETSA’s blessing for the CAE book. ETSA secretary, Steve “Wilkie” Wilkinson, comments :
“I have just finished reading an absolutely fantastic book written by one of our ETSA Members, Larry Milberry from CANAV Books, entitled Aviation in Canada – The CAE Story.
This recently published authoritative history is packed with facts about the major simulator manufacturer and is enhanced by a wealth of interesting photographs.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the simulator industry, who is keen on aviation, or who just wants a good read! Further details, together with details of how to obtain your own copy are given here.”
For and on behalf of the European Training and Simulation Association,
Earlier, in the Ottawa Citizen of October 9, business writer David Pugliese gave a welcomed “mention” to our new book:
“CANAV Books has just produced a new volume to its Aviation in Canada series. This one deals with one of Canada’s most successful aviation firms, CAE… This is Volume 7 of the series begun in 2008. Like all Aviation in Canada books, this one is lavishly illustrated with rare photos, both in colour and black and white. It is a whopping 392 pages.
There is lots of inside information … There are even some strange tales from the 1960s such as the deal CAE had to produce a simulator for Jugoslovenski Aerotransport (JAT). The company didn’t have the $1.5 million for its simulator so it paid CAE in canned meat, which was then sold.”
