Global Pilot Training Group CAE and US Regional Airline Inaugurate Major Simulator Training Center Expansion

CAE and Endeavor Air inaugurated their expanded training centre in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. The training centre recently underwent a 50,000 square-foot expansion to make space for Endeavor’s Flight Operations and Inflight Training departments and three additional CRJ full-flight simulators (FFS) that will allow Endeavor Air to consolidate all its pilot and cabin crew training, which previously took place in multiple locations, at the state-of-the-art centre in Minneapolis-St. Paul. With this expansion, the facility is now the largest CRJ training facility in the world.

Endeavor Air anticipates that approximately 2,000 pilots will visit the Endeavor Air Learning Center at CAE each year for training. Currently 120 instructors support the flight operations training program and 16 instructors support the flight attendant training program. Between 2,000 and 2,300 flight attendants will come through the facility for both new-hire and annual recurrent training each year.

“We are thrilled to be here today with our long-standing partner, Endeavor Air, to celebrate the growth of the CAE Minneapolis-St. Paul training centre. The expanded training centre will not only support Endeavor Air as they train and recruit pilots but will also deliver efficiencies and a world-class training experience by consolidating all training in one centre housing state-of-the-art simulators.” said Michel Azar-Hmouda, Vice President, Global Commercial Aviation Training. “Our partnership with Endeavor Air is a shining example of how CAE can rapidly and effectively scale its training operations to meet the needs of its airline customers as they grow.”

“This newly expanded facility, made possible by our partnership with CAE, is a tremendous asset for Endeavor Air,” said Jim Graham, CEO, Endeavor Air. “Our training programs always strive to set the Gold Standard in the industry, and we are committed to providing equally outstanding resources to help our crewmembers learn in the most effective way possible. This incredible facility allows us to co-locate our training and learning teams for both pilots and flight attendants, creating greater opportunities for collaboration and joint learning between departments.”

The CAE Minneapolis-St. Paul training centre was first opened in 2017, with four CRJ FFSs. Today, the centre operates eight CRJ FFSs, two B737NG FFSs, three CRJ flight training devices (FTDs) and cabin crew training equipment.
