CAE Signs Five-Year Training Agreement With AirAsia

CAE recently announced the signing of a new five-year training agreement for AirAsia’s long-haul pilots. The agreement extends the use of the CAE Rise training system to AirAsia’s long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X, on the Airbus A330 platform. CAE is providing initial training for the airline’s pilots and will soon undertake recurrent training at its training centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, starting in July.
“The extension of the CAE Rise system to the Airbus A330 platform recognises our commitment to providing world-class training for our pilots,” said Captain Desmond Voo, AirAsia X’s Chief Pilot Training and Standards. “We’ve embarked on a mission to digitise every aspect of our business, and by implementing CAE Rise we’re able to better train and develop our pilots using real-life scenarios and data.”
Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President Civil Aviation Training Solutions, added: “Our CAE Rise Training System will give instructors a new approach to objectively assess pilot competencies using live data during training sessions. It will provide real-time insights and standardised evaluations in accordance with the airlines Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).”
CAE and AirAsia share a long-standing relationship of more than 15 years, with the provision of training equipment and training centre operation services. The partnership further evolved into the launch of an innovative Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) cadet-training programme.
