CAE Signs Comprehensive Long-Term Pilot Training Agreement With CityJet

Will Be Exclusive Provider Of CRJ900 Initial Type Rating Training For The Carrier

CAE has signed an exclusive long-term pilot training contract with CityJet, the Irish European regional airline. Under the terms of the agreement, CAE will deliver Bombardier CRJ900 pilot training to the airline for a period of eight years following the start of training expected by May 2020. As such, CAE will deploy a new CAE 7000XR series CRJ900/1000 full-flight simulator (FFS) at CAE Amsterdam by 2020, and will update its current CRJ200/900 FFS to the latest CRJ900 configuration at CAE Copenhagen by the end of 2019. Furthermore, CAE instructors will provide Bombardier CRJ900 type-rating training at CAE Copenhagen. The airline’s flight and cabin crew will continue to train on the platform at CAE Amsterdam, CAE Brussels, CAE Copenhagen and CAE Stockholm.

Additionally, to support CityJet’s growth plans and meet its training needs, CAE will train the airline’s future pilots starting with 12 cadets next year, building on its previous agreement. As part of their 18-month training program, cadets will complete their ground school and flight training at CAE Oxford and CAE Phoenix. Upon successful completion of their training, graduates will be employed by CityJet.

“CAE has been a tremendous partner for CityJet over the past few years, developing our future pilots, and providing an outstanding training experience to our pilots and cabin crew. With this announcement, the increased capacity and the upgraded simulator at CAE Copenhagen will ensure our training needs will be met in the coming years,” said Capt. Robert Campbell Smith, General Manager Flight Operations at CityJet.

“We are excited to build on our relationship with CityJet with this new long-term training agreement,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “As the training partner of choice, CAE places great importance on supporting the increasing training needs of its airline partners. We are pleased to invest in our training network to better serve our partner CityJet.”

CAE has been CityJet’s training partner of choice since 2016, providing cadet to captain and cabin crew training, as well as crew resourcing services.
