CAE announced today at the 2018 European Airline Training Symposium (EATS) the signature of an exclusive two-year pilot training agreement with LOT Polish Airlines (LOT), flag carrier of Poland, on various Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer aircraft platforms.

The airline’s pilots began training earlier this fall at multiple CAE training locations in Europe, including CAE Amsterdam, CAE Madrid, CAE London Gatwick and CAE Stockholm.

“This agreement helps us invest in the future growth of LOT and helps us attract new pilots on the global competitive aviation market. We take pride in offering our pilots a world-class training experience. New candidates have an opportunity to develop professionally and are evaluated based on their skills and experience rather than seniority,” says Maciej Wilk, Chief Operations Officer of LOT.

CAE and LOT Polish Airlines share a long-standing relationship of more than 10 years, with the provision of pilot training.
