Jetstar Japan and CAE have announced a new exclusive six-year pilot training agreement which will support the airline's Airbus A320 pilot training needs in Japan. A CAE-built Airbus A320 full flight simulator (FFS) will be ready for training this summer at the CAE Tokyo/JAL-CAE Flight Training (JCFT) centre located at Haneda Airport, Tokyo.

Through this agreement, Jetstar Japan will become a launch customer for the CAE Rise training system. This system allows instructors to deliver standardized training in accordance with the airline's Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). CAE Rise enables instructors to objectively assess pilot competencies using live data during training sessions, and through deep analytical insights, enhance Jetstar Japan's pilot training program.
