CAE announced at the 2016 Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium that it has signed a new pilot training agreement with Korea Airports Corporation (KAC), a decision welcomed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) of the Republic of Korea.

This 5-year contract complements the recently announced sale of the Cessna M2 full flight simulator (FFS).

As part of the agreement, CAE will provide a number of training services to support KAC's new jet training program under which up to 200 cadets will be trained every year. KAC's new jet training program will include ground-school training, as well as aircraft and full flight simulator training. The future pilots will start training next year at CAE's Korea Training Centre at Gimpo airport, Korea.

"We are confident that CAE will deliver world-class training services and help us with all of our training needs to address the growing demand of new pilots in Korea," said Mr. Lim Gui Sup, KAC Vice President of Business Development.

"We are delighted to see the partnership between KAC and CAE, and we are confident that this new jet training program will be a great success and will contribute greatly to the Korean Aviation industry," said Mr. Chang Man Heui, MOLIT Senior Director of Aviation safety. "We will continue to support this new partnership between KAC and CAE and look forward to our growing relationship with CAE."
