CAE have signed new commercial aviation training contracts with Fly Gangwon and Philippine Airlines.

Fly Gangwon, a new low-cost South Korean carrier, has signed a five-year pilot training agreement for the Boeing 737 aircraft platform. Pilots will begin their initial type-rating training with instructors at the CAE Seoul centre later this year.

"We are witnessing rapid growth in South Korea’s aviation market driven by low-cost carriers," said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "CAE’s comprehensive suite of training services will ensure their pilots are trained to the highest standards in the region."

Philippine Airlines, an existing CAE customer, agreed a new two-year agreement for pilot training.

Training on the Boeing 777 FFS will take place at CAE Singapore - Singapore CAE Flight Training (SCFT). While the Airbus A350 FFS training will be at CAE Tokyo – JAL CAE Flight Training (JCFT).

CAE made the announcements at the Asia Pacific Airline Training Summit (APATS) in Singapore.
