We are delighted to that our pilots will continue to train on the most innovative training equipment suite”.

“We are pleased to be Qatar Airways’ training partner of choice and to support our airline partner’s growth and training needs for its new Boeing 777X and 737MAX fleet,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “The future of aviation and demand for pilot training in the Middle East is on the rise. This new training equipment agreement is a testament to our commitment to provide Qatar Airways with the most comprehensive training solutions for many years to come. We also look forward to supporting our partner with the entry into service of the new 777X aircraft.”

CAE and Qatar Airways share a relationship that spans over 15 years, with the delivery of innovative training equipment solutions and training centre operation services.

This new Boeing 777X and 737MAX FFSs’ order bring the total number of simulators purchased from CAE to 13.
