Riyadh Air, a new airline, has purchased two Boeing 787 CAE7000XR full-flight simulators (FFS) and a Boeing 787 flight training device (FTD) to support the new airline as it continues its journey to take off in 2025. CAE and Riyadh Air will work in partnership with Prince Sultan University to deploy the simulators in 2024 at a purpose-built facility at the newly established College of Aviation and Space, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“We look forward to working in partnership with Riyadh Air and Prince Sultan University to develop a new training centre with advanced simulation technology that will equip the airline’s personnel with the skills and confidence to deliver the highest levels of safety and a memorable customer experience on every flight,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation.

By combining forces, CAE, Riyadh Air and Prince Sultan University aim to set new standards for pilot training and aviation safety in Saudi Arabia and destinations around the world that will be served by Riyadh Air.
