CAE To Add Fifth Training Facility in India
CAE Flight Training (India) and InterGlobe Enterprises of India are forming a joint-venture training center to provide pilot and maintenance training in India. Located in the National Capital Region, Delhi, India, it is slated to begin operations by the end of next year. It is the fifth CAE facility in the country. CAE currently trains more than 1,500 crewmembers every year at its training center in Bengaluru. It was the first independent training center in India and the first to earn approval as a fixed-wing type rating training organization. The focus of the new training center will be to provide type-rating, recurrent, conversion and jet indoctrination training for commercial aircraft pilots and maintenance technicians. The training center will initially house four new CAE-built Level-D full-flight simulators covering Airbus and Boeing types being operated in India and complementing CAE capabilities at its Bengaluru training center. The Delhi training center will accommodate expansion to eight simulator bays.
