CAE has signed an exclusive five-year pilot training agreement with low-cost carrier T'Way Air, which is based in Korea, and will support its increasing Boeing 737NG pilot training needs from the second half of 2018.

“As we experience rapid growth and expand our fleet, we are looking to our training partner of choice, CAE, to deliver high-quality, innovative training solutions. Our pilots have been training at CAE Korea and today we are delighted to extend our relationship, this time leveraging the experience of CAE instructors to train our crews to the highest standards,” stated Hong-Geun Jung, Chief Executive Officer of T'Way Air.

Through this agreement, the airline is further outsourcing its training by delivering pilot training programmes in collaboration with CAE instructors.

This news was delivered at Halldale's Asian Aviation Education and Training Symposium (AAETS) event and builds on CAE's commitment to the Asia Pacific region following the announcement it was launching its CAE Rise training system with AirAsia.
