CAE today announced that it will open a new training centre in Seoul, Republic of Korea, to train pilots for the Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The CAE Seoul centre will be located near Gimpo International Airport and will be ready for training by Fall 2012.
CAE currently offers training services at 42 locations worldwide for operators of commercial aircraft, business aircraft and civil helicopters.
"CAE has been providing simulation products to airlines in Korea for three decades, and we are pleased to expand our presence with this new training facility focused on the rapidly growing regional carrier market in North East Asia," said Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "CAE's extensive presence in Asia and around the globe, together with our unwavering commitment to quality, assures our customers of the highest fidelity and reliability for their training programs."
CAE Seoul will initially feature a Boeing 737-800 full-flight simulator and Integrated Procedures Trainer. Additional training capability will be added as needed to serve carriers in Korea and Japan.
This will be CAE's second civil aviation training location in Korea and 14th deployed or announced in Asia and Australia. CAE offers third-party training capability in Seoul on an A330 FFS in the Asiana Airlines training centre.
