CAE expands its digital solutions portfolio with the addition of RB Group

Building a comprehensive suite of software applications for operators and their crew members

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, April 6, 2021 (NYSE: CAE; TSX: CAE) – CAE announced today the expansion of its digital solutions portfolio with the addition of RB Group, a leading provider of fully integrated award-winning solutions that modernize the way airlines and business aircraft operators interact with their crew. This announcement further supports CAE’s expansion into digital flight crew management and represents another important milestone in the Company’s goal to unite operators and crew in a single, interconnected digital ecosystem.

“Over the past two years, CAE has been focused on unifying a digital flight operations ecosystem with the goal of delivering a holistic suite of solutions designed to improve operations and enhance crew experience. As they prepare for return to flight, crew members will be able to manage and schedule their activities more effectively and operators will have integrated tools to connect and engage with crews like never before,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “This acquisition is a natural evolution of our business and our commitment to operators, pilots, and crew around the world. We’re excited about integrating RB Group’s technical expertise to serve operators and crew members everywhere.”

Following the acquisition of Merlot Aero’s crew management and optimization software in December 2020, the addition of RB Group enhances CAE’s product portfolio with powerful digital tools that further improve airline operations and crew work-life balance. The suite of applications includes a digital logbook, and the award-winning crew engagement RosterBuster app.

With over 400,000 users globally and over 500 airlines currently supported, the RosterBuster crew app empowers aviation professionals with relevant and instant information and allows users to connect to their airline operations, communicate with fellow crew members, and manage their busy day-to-day lives with ease.
