In addition, SAS will have access to train on CAE’s Airbus A350 full-flight simulator (above) in CAE London Gatwick and CAE Madrid. The airline’s cabin crew will also continue to train in CAE’s training network in the Nordics as part of this agreement renewal.

“CAE provides an excellent training experience to our pilots and cabin crew, and we are happy to extend our agreement for another five years,” said Lena Rökaas, Vice President and Accountable Manager for Scandinavian Airlines, SAS. “We greatly benefit from our long-term cooperation with CAE, and we are confident that CAE will continue to deliver high quality training.’’

“CAE and SAS have a longstanding relationship of more than 10 years with the provision of training equipment services, initial and recurrent pilot training, and cabin crew training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “With training centres located very close to the airline’s operating base, CAE is well-positioned to continue to support SAS as the airline continues to grow.”

In support of this agreement, CAE will deploy an Airbus A320 NEO full-flight simulator at CAE Oslo by the second half of calendar 2020.
