The CAE-Cebu Pacific joint venture, Philippine Academy for Aviation Training (PAAT), is expanding its training capacity with the acquisition of a new Airbus A320NEO full-flight simulator. The CAE7000XR Series FFS, equipped with the CAE Tropos™ 6000XR visual system for realism, will serve the growing pilot training needs of Cebu Pacific and other operators in the region. The new simulator will be deployed at the CAE Clark – PAAT training centre, near Manila, in the first half of 2019.

Deploying a new Airbus A320NEO FFS with CAE-partner Cebu Pacific strengthens the company’s offering in the region, and particularly in the Philippines, as the airline continues to grow, says Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.
