Icelandair and CAE signed an agreement to acquire an Airbus A320-family full-flight simulator (FFS) to support the entry-into-service of the airline’s new Airbus A321 fleet in 2025. The new CAE FFS sold to Icelandair will be installed at the CAE Reykjavík - Icelandair Flight Training Centre, a joint venture between the two companies, and will be ready for training by the end of 2025.

This latest generation FFS is designed to replicate the flight characteristics and systems of the Airbus A320. Equipped with high-fidelity visuals, an immersive cockpit environment, and realistic flight dynamics, the simulator will serve as a critical training tool for pilots, ensuring they are thoroughly prepared to operate the new aircraft safely and efficiently.

In addition to being used for initial training and type rating, the FFS will also be used for the twice-annual recurrent training pilots must complete, ensuring they remain proficient and current in their skills and knowledge.
