CAE increases its capacity in Madrid to train Air Europa pilots and cabin crew members
CAE and Air Europa today announced that they are building on their longstanding partnership with a long-term agreement to provide pilot and cabin crew training in Madrid, Spain.
As part of this agreement, CAE will deploy a B737NG full-flight simulator (FFS) at its Madrid training centre in October 2023. The latest-generation CAE 7000 XR-Series Level D FFS will provide an immersive pilot training experience and add training capacity to support the growth of Air Europa and Air Europa Express. In addition, CAE Madrid will become Air Europa’s cabin crew training base, with a new B787 door trainer bringing new capabilities to the centre.
“The continuous training of our professionals is a key part of Air Europa’s operational strategy. Doing so with CAE’s solutions and resources has been a guarantee of efficiency and good service for years, and we are pleased to be able to renew that trust, especially now that we have completed our fleet unification process around the Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 787 models”, said John Baiget, Air Europa’s Chief Operating Officer.
CAE Madrid is a full-service commercial aviation training centre that offers a wide range of airline pilot, cabin crew, and Ab Initio training solutions. When the B737NG simulator enters service, the centre will operate 12 FFS for Airbus, ATR, Boeing, Bombardier, and De Havilland aircraft and equipment for cabin crew safety training.
