CAE and Vueling Airlines have inaugurated a second A320 full flight simulator in CAE's Barcelona training centre for commercial aircraft pilots. The expansion is part of the new training services agreement with Vueling Airlines announced last November.
CAE has worked in partnership with Vueling to offer training services and support since the airline's launch in 2004. Through this partnership, over 1,000 pilots and cabin crew have been trained for the Spanish carrier, which is part of the International Airlines Group (IAG).
"We are pleased to be Vueling's training partner of choice and support the airline in its growth," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "Since the inauguration of the centre in 2012, we have doubled the training capacity, supporting our longstanding partner's growth in the region."
