CAE is to train 1,000 new easyJet cadet pilots on a Multi-Crew Pilot licence (MPL) programme.
CAE will also provide Airbus 320 type rating training and place graduates on CAE’s Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) programme with easyJet.
“We are delighted to be partnering with CAE as our pilot training partner of choice,” said David Morgan, easyJet’s interim Chief Operating Officer.
“The professionalism and skill of our pilots are in part due to our investment in training and technology, delivered by trusted partners like CAE.”
Selected cadets will begin MPL training with CAE in 2020 and upon completion of training, the first graduates will join operations as easyJet co-pilots by the end of 2021.
Aspiring pilots on the easyJet MPL course will complete their ground school classes in one of CAE’s European aviation academy locations including CAE Brussels, CAE Madrid, CAE Milan or CAE Oxford.
The easyJet MPL training programme showcases the latest competency-based training innovations developed by CAE in collaboration with easyJet.
The training programme also embeds easyJet Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Threat and Error Management strategies. It will be the first MPL course to include Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulation in the training devices.
Cadets will train in glass-cockpit aircraft and will be the first to conduct their training on CAE’s newest flight training device (FTD), the CAE 600XR.
