News in Brief

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

Cana­dian flight train­ing spe­cial­ist CAE has sold one 500XR flight train­ing de­vice and one Air­bus A320­neo 7000XR full-flight sim­u­la­tor to Kuwait Air­ways. The de­vices will be de­liv­ered to the air­lines train­ing cen­ter in Kuwait City. The sale of the A320­neo sim­u­la­tor was in­cluded in CAE’s first quar­ter fis­cal 2018 re­sults, said the com­pany.

Kuwait Air­ways and CAE (Stand 1335) have had a busi­ness re­la­tion­ship for 20 years, and this in­cludes CAE de­liv­er­ing train­ing equip­ment and ser­vices such as Boe­ing 777 and Air­bus A320 pi­lot train­ing at the Emi­rates-CAE Flight Train­ing Cen­tre in Dubai. The train­ing com­pany has also se­lected, as­sessed and trained pi­lots for type-rat­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for Kuwait Air­ways. The air­line plans to re­cruit more than 100 CAE-trained pi­lots over the next two years.

“It is a plea­sure to sup­port Kuwait Air­ways’s growth and its train­ing needs for its lat­est A320­neo fleet,” said Nick Leon­tidis, CAE group pres­i­dent, civil sim­u­la­tion and train­ing. “With about 30,000 new air­line pi­lots needed in the re­gion over the next 10 years, we are hon­ored to ply a cen­tral role in the cre­ation of fu­ture pi­lots; were glad that our air­line part­ner con­tin­ues to en­trust us with our abil­ity to pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive, in­no­va­tive train­ing so­lu­tions.”
