CAE has signed a long-term exclusive training agreement with easyJet to train 1,000 new easyJet cadet pilots on a Multi-Crew Pilot licence (MPL) programme. CAE will also provide Airbus 320 type rating training and place graduates of CAE’s Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) programme with easyJet.

Selected cadets will begin MPL training with CAE in 2020 and upon completion of training, the first graduates will join operations as easyJet co-pilots by the end of 2021. Aspiring pilots on the easyJet MPL course will complete their ground school classes in one of CAE’s European aviation academy locations including CAE Brussels, CAE Madrid, CAE Milan or CAE Oxford.

The easyJet MPL training programme showcases the latest competency-based training innovations developed by CAE in collaboration with easyJet. The training programme also embeds easyJet Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Threat and Error Management strategies. It will be the first MPL course to include Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulation in the training devices.

The programme will deliver a seamless training experience, from ground school training to full-flight simulation. Cadets will train in glass-cockpit aircraft and will be the first trainees to conduct their training on CAE’s latest generation flight training device (FTD), the CAE 600XR. This innovative technology provides the highest training fidelity in today’s fixed-based training market.
