CAE is expanding pilot training across Europe with new airline contracts and new equipment for two new aircraft entering into service – the ATR 72-600 and Embraer 195.
Stobart Air, based in Ireland, and Brussels Airlines are the new contracts. To fulfill them, CAE has installed new ATR 72-600 and A320 full-flight simulators and updated training equipment to the latest standards in Madrid, Spain; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and London Gatwick, United Kingdom.
“CAE places such great importance on supporting the various growing training needs of our airline customers around the world,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.
“I’m pleased that we have signed new training services contracts and invested in our training network to better serve our existing and future customers. This is part of our commitment of being the training partner of choice.”
New CAE customer Stobart Air will begin training its pilots at CAE’s training centre in Madrid in late 2017 on the new ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator and at CAE Amsterdam in the first half of 2018 on the Embraer E190 platforms.
Brussels Airlines has extended its partnership with CAE with the signing of a renewed Airbus A320 and A330 training equipment services contract. Under the five-year agreement, Brussels Airlines’ pilots will continue to train at CAE’s training centre in Brussels.
