Asian Aviation Centre of Excellence (AACE), a joint venture between Air Asia and CAE, added a new A330 CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulator (FFS) at the AACE training centre in Glenmarie, Selangor, Malaysia that brings the total number of full-flight simulators at all AACE centres to 12.

AACE supports pilot training needs of more than 35 airline customers through the delivery training courses including type-rating on Airbus A320, A330 and Boeing 737NG platforms and says this investment represents an important step in positioning AACE as a premier institution in aviation training in the region.

The CAE 7000XR Series FFS is the CAE's next generation of simulators that are used to train pilots in a full array of situations and environmental conditions and is designed, according to CAE, to optimize life-cycle costs and addresses new and future training requirements. Its enhanced features include a re-designed instructor office with support for mobile devices and real-time data analysis and feedback and it is equipped with embedded training capabilities to address Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).

The new CAE 7000XR Series FFS was accredited and certified by DCA Malaysia and the Korea Office of Civil Aviation (KOCA).
