03rd Nov 2021

CAE and Scandinavian carrier SAS, announced today at the 2021 European Aviation Training Symposium in Berlin, the signing of an exclusive Airbus A350 pilot training agreement until 2032. CAE already provides Airbus A320, A330 and Boeing 737 full-flight simulator (FFS) training to the airline’s pilots.

“CAE and SAS have a long-standing partnership in which CAE trains SAS pilots at CAE training centers in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “The addition of the CAE 7000XR Series Airbus A350 FFS is an exciting next step in our commitment to provide leading training solutions to SAS pilots for years to come.”

CAE has been providing training solutions services, initial and recurrent pilot training, and cabin crew training to SAS for more than 10 years. Pilot training for Airbus A350 aircraft is a key part of SAS’s growth and fleet modernization as the airline continues to open up new destinations and more frequent flights. In support of this agreement, CAE deployed an Airbus A320 FFS to its CAE Oslo training centre in 2021 and will deploy another Airbus A350 FFS to its CAE Copenhagen training centre in the beginning of 2022.

This training contract was included in CAE’s first quarter fiscal 2022 results published on August 11, 2021.
