PARIS, June 19 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin of the United States and Canada's CAE have teamed for F-35 training and training support services.

The Memorandum of Understanding was announced at the Paris Air Show.

"Canadian industry has played an integral part in the development and production of the F-35 for more than a decade," said Steve O'Bryan, vice president of F-35 Program Integration and Business Development. "Canada's industrial contribution to this program has truly just begun. The new alliance we established today is indicative of the long-term role Canadian industry will hold in the global sustainment of the F-35 fleet for the next 30 years and beyond, and directly supports the evolution of training systems, one of the key industrial capabilities recently promoted by the government of Canada."

Under the MOU, CAE is the preferred provider of in-country F-35 training support, training system integration, operations and maintenance.

Additional details of the contract for F-35 training were not disclosed.

CAE, headquartered in Quebec, provides modeling, simulation and training for civil aviation and defense.
