"With today's announcements we have set in motion the next round of actions necessary to unleash the full potential of the Bombardier portfolio", said Bombardier CEO Alain Bellemare.
It posted net profit of $149 million compared with a net loss of $100 million a year earlier when the company made heavy investments in various segments, including planes.
The company "has launched a company-wide restructuring initiative focused on optimizing production and management processes, flattening management structures and further reducing indirect costs", it said in a media release.
"We're continuing to improve our processes", he said.
The changes came as Bombardier reported a profit of US$149 million or four cents per share in its latest quarter, compared with a loss of US$100 million or four cents per share in the same quarter past year.
Sales were down 5% to $3.6bn, but revenue is expected to jump 10% to at least $18bn next year. The deal gives CAE full flight simulators and training devices for all of Bombardier's business jet product lines, Learjet, Challenger and Global, including its newest Global 5500, 6500 and 7500 large-cabin jets.
