• Aeromexico obtains second simulator from CAE as it prepares for growth
  • The B737 MAX FFSsim is designed to optimize life-cycle costs

Aeromexico has received Mexican Federal Civil Aviation Agency certification of its second CAE 7000XR Boeing 737 MAX full-flight simulator (FFS) as the airline prepares for growth.

The CAE 7000XR Series leverages the latest advancements in technology and training capabilities and is designed to optimize life-cycle costs while addressing new and future training requirements. Aeromexico received its first CAE-built 7000XR 737 MAX full-flight simulator in 2019.

“This new CAE Boeing 737 MAX full-flight simulator will support our training needs as travel demand increases and grow our fleet,” said Max Alvarez, Senior Vice President Fleet and New Business of Grupo Aeromexico. “By using the latest technology, we will reinforce our commitment to operate with the highest safety standards and continue to be recognized for having pilots with the top-level of training in Mexico and worldwide.”

Aeromexico and CAE have had a successful partnership since 2016 with a training agreement supporting the airline’s overflow training requirements and using CAE’s extensive training network in the Americas. In 2018, CAE and Aeromexico launched the Aeromexico Cadet Program at CAE’s flight academy in Phoenix, Arizona, a first-of-its-kind for a Mexican carrier. In 2021, Aeromexico signed up for CAE’s Pelesys online training courses.
