Cebu Pacific Air (Cebu) added pilot training for ATR 72-600 to an exclusive 15-year training agreement with its joint venture CAE Clark – Philippine Academy for Aviation Training (PAAT). Under the terms of the agreement, CAE instructors will deliver initial and recurrent training to Cebu’s pilots on a brand-new CAE-built ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator (FFS). The device is deployed to CAE Clark training centre in the Philippines and is the first ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator to join CAE’s network in Asia.
The ATR 72-600 FFS comes with the most recent Standard from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and includes the extended motion envelope allowing trainees to perform Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT). The ATR 72-600 FFS complements the three Airbus A320 FFSs that are already installed and servicing the market.
As part of the partnership with Cebu, CAE trains the airline’s pilots on the Airbus A320 and A330 platforms at CAE Kuala Lumpur and CAE Hong Kong. The new CAE ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator (FFS) deployed to the CAE Clark training centre will support this new training agreement.
