CAE has signed an exclusive long-term Airbus A350 pilot training contract with Iberia Airlines.

Under the agreement, Iberia pilots will receive Airbus A350 training at CAE's training centre in Madrid from the second half of 2018. The airline’s pilots and cabin crew have been training on Airbus A320, A330 and A340 aircraft platforms at CAE's training centre in Madrid since 2004.

“CAE is proud to serve our long-standing partners like Iberia. I think that the length and the expansion of our relationship with Iberia speaks volumes to the quality of our training products and services, and customer support. It is always a privilege to support our airline customers for their growing training needs,” stated Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.

CAE has been the training partner of choice for Spain's flag carrier for over 50 years, beginning with the sale of the airline's very first full-flight simulator.

CAE is exhibiting at EATS 2017 on booth #304.
