The company said Monday it developed the CAE Rise system on Microsoft‘s Azure Government cloud platform and designed the system for clients to generate digital lesson plans, deliver feedback and customize student training.

“The aviation industry ““ both military and civil ““ faces the long-term challenge of producing sufficient numbers of highly-qualified pilots to meet demand,” said Gene Colabatistto, president for CAE’s defense and security group.

Colabatistto added the company seeks to help aviation organizations prepare pilots with the Rise system.
