Mount Cook Airline, a subsidiary of Air New Zealand, is the latest ATR operator to choose the Mechtronix ATR 72-600 flat panel trainer (FPT). The new trainer will be used to help convert pilots from the airlines existing fleet of ATR 72-500s to the 72-600s.

Two of CAE’s simulators located at its training centre in Burgess Hill, UK, the Dassault Falcon 7X and the Dassault Falcon 2000 EASy, have received Level D qualification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the new EASy II avionics package. These new programs, part of a Dassault Authorized Training Provider agreement, allow CAE to be the first training provider to deliver training with the latest EASy II avionics for the 7X and 2000 EASy series.
