Singapore Airlines (SIA) and CAE will launch operations of their new Singapore CAE Flight Training Pte. Ltd. (SCFT) joint venture for pilot training in Singapore next month.

The joint venture will provide simulator and classroom training with an initial focus on Boeing aircraft types, supporting SIA Group airlines and other operators' pilot training needs in the region. The equally-owned joint venture will operate out of the Singapore Airlines Training Centre located near Changi Airport.

SIA will transfer four of its full flight Boeing aircraft simulators to the venture, while additional new CAE-built training equipment including the Boeing 737 MAX and 787 aircraft type full flight simulators and flight training devices will be deployed by June 2019.
