CAE announced at the World Aviation Training Symposium (WATS) that in response to increased pilot training demand, it is expanding its training capacity for airlines in the Americas.
“CAE has steadily increased its commercial aviation training footprint in the Americas to support our airline partners’ growing pilot training needs,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s group president, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “We will be expanding our training network in the Americas with the addition of more than 15 simulators for a total of over 50 full-flight simulators in the region by the end of 2019, that’s a 35 per cent training capacity growth in three years.”
CAE’s strategic partnerships with airlines across the region and its commitment to regional customers paved the way to a new training centre in Bogota, Colombia, in 2019 and two additional U.S. training centres in Minneapolis and Phoenix in 2017.
CAE deployed new state-of-the-art, CAE-built Airbus A320 NEO full-flight simulators in CAE Montreal, CAE Bogota, CAE Mexico and in CAE Santiago. In addition, CAE will be deploying a Bombardier CRJ900 at CAE Minneapolis, an Embraer E170 at CAE Phoenix and a Boeing 787 at CAE Bogota.
