easyJet has partnered with CAE, a global leader in aviation training, who will deliver a fleet of brand new flight simulators to the airline and establish three new European easyJet pilot training locations, which are set to become the most modern pilot training facilities in Europe.

As part on the new agreement, CAE will build a new state-of-the-art training centre in London Gatwick with a dedicated space to serve easyJet’s training needs and deploy a total of nine Airbus A320-family full-flight simulators (FFSs) and three flight training devices (FTDs) in the new London Gatwick centre and two additional training locations in Manchester, UK and Milan, Italy. The centres will be ready for training starting in the second half of 2019.

easyJet will be utilising CAE’s latest generation of flight simulators, including the CAE 7000XR FFS equipped with the CAE Tropos™ 6000XR visual system, and will be the first airline to train its pilots using CAE’s latest generation of FTDs, the CAE 600XR. These simulators are among the most advanced pilot training technologies available in the industry today.
