CAE and Sunwing Airlines announced that they would be extending their exclusive training agreement and adding five more years to the partnership. CAE instructors will continue to train Sunwing Airlines pilots on the Boeing 737NG aircraft platform at training centers throughout its network, including CAE Montreal and CAE Toronto, until 2030. To help support this pilot training agreement with Sunwing Airlines, CAE will deploy a new CAE 7000XR Series Boeing 737 MAX full-flight simulator (FFS) to CAE Toronto by the end of 2019.
