CAE Global Academy - Additional Flight Training Organizations

CAE : 11 April, 2007  (New Product)
CAE adds three flight training organizations to CAE Global Academy
CAE has added three new flight training organizations to its CAE Global Academy bringing the number of schools in its network to six and increasing the supply of pilots that will graduate and be licensed annually from over 600 to over 1,000.

The three new flight training organizations (FTO) are SAA Flight Training, based in San Diego, California, U.S. (part of Scandinavian Aviation Academy, of the Volito Group); HubAir, based in Brussels, Belgium with training facilities in France; and Moncton Flight College, based in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.

'We are proud to welcome these new flight training organizations to the CAE Global Academy. The span of our partners in the area of ab-initio training is becoming more and more global to complement our training network. We now offer ab-initio flight training around the world including in the emerging markets of Asia, India and China which are experiencing a critical pilot shortage,' said Jeff Roberts, CAE�s Group President, Innovation and Civil Training & Services. 'With the global jet fleet expected to almost double in the next 20 years, industry sources estimate demand for new pilots at 18,000 annually.'

The CAE Global Academy is a worldwide network of flight training organizations. It offers pilot candidates an optimized program with standard operating procedures, to ensure their development into highly qualified pilots with the potential to be recruited as first officers on a commercial aircraft.

Students will receive traditional abinitio training at CAE Global Academy. Upon graduation, they can register for CAE's pilot provisioning program where they will receive type-rating qualification through CAE�s global training network. CAE is under contract with numerous airlines to recruit, qualify, and train pilot candidates for eventual hire by the airlines. In the future, CAE will utilize the CAE Global Academy to introduce a standardized Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL) curriculum and courseware along with supporting flight training devices.

SAA Flight Training has trained pilots towards commercial licenses and ratings since 1994. It has seen a rapid expansion because of increased requests for flight training in the last year. With international ties and broad expertise and experience, SAA Flight Training meets today�s challenge of providing high-quality pilots to the rapid growing markets around the world. Based at San Diego's Gilespie Field, SAA Flight Training trains 150 students per year, from the U.S., Europe and India.

HubAir is a leading aviation training company providing ab-initio airline pilot training in three different locations. Its principal training location is in Brussels but it also has arrangements to use the flight training facilities of two French schools: Cannes Aviation, the French Diamond Centre, and EPAG, the training school for Air France cadets. Hub�Air trains 100 students per year from Western Europe and Russia and has the capacity to train over 200 students by making use of its training locations in France.

Moncton Flight College is the oldest flight school in Canada. Since 1929, over 15,000 pilots have trained there. The college trains 125 students per year from Canada, Europe and China, and has the capacity to train 250.
