At Halldale Media Group’s 2017 Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS) event, CAE announced it is expanding its training footprint in South East Asia through a collaboration with Jakarta Aviation Training Centre (JATC).

Under this collaboration, CAE will deploy its first-ever owned full-flight simulator in Indonesia (an Airbus A320 FFS) which will be delivered to JATC's training facilities near Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport this autumn.

“With Asia-Pacific being one of the fastest-growing markets in commercial aviation, we are extremely proud to expand our training network with the deployment of our first-ever first full-flight simulator in Indonesia,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “It is an honour to build on our relationship with JATC and to support the increasing pilot training needs of airline customers across the region.”

Arif Syafrie, President Director of JATC, commented, “We are honoured to partner with the worldwide leader in training, CAE, to provide increasing pilot training capacity to airline customers in South East Asia such as AirAsia Indonesia. We look forward to further successful collaborations long into the future.”
