CAE announced on Tuesday 12th March it has concluded a series of long-term commercial training and services contracts valued at approximately C$245 million with GECAS, Jetblue Airways, LANTAM Airlines Group, Ryanair and Turkish Airlines.
CAE signed a new four-year training services agreement with Ryanair extending a training relationship that has been in place since 2001. The agreement includes the recruitment, selection, and type-rating training of an expected 1,000 new pilot cadets for the B737NG aircraft. Training will be conducted at CAE's training center in Amsterdam and at Ryanair's training centre at East Midlands airport in the UK.
CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services Jeff Roberts said "These contracts are a testament to CAE's unique ability to offer end-to-end solutions to our airline customers, from ab-initio training to type-rating through to pilot sourcing, and long-term service agreements following the sale of simulator. We will continue to leverage the capabilities of our recently acquired Oxford Aviation Academy and Parc Aviation and our commercial training network in our commitment to being the partner of choice for airlines on every continent."
