Cebu Pacific Air Adds ATR 72-600 Training to a 15-year Exclusive Agreement With CAE-Cebu JV

CAE deployed first CAE ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator to its network in Asia

CAE announced today that Cebu Pacific Air (Cebu) added pilot training for ATR 72-600 to an exclusive 15-year training agreement with its joint venture, Philippine Academy for Aviation Training (PAAT). Under the terms of the agreement, CAE instructors will deliver initial and recurrent training to Cebu’s pilots on a brand-new CAE-built ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator (FFS). The device is deployed to CAE Clark training centre in the Philippines and is the first ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator to join CAE’s network in Asia.  

"Cebu Pacific Air and CAE share a partnership that spans almost 10 years, and CAE is thrilled to continue supporting the airline while it begins to resume travel schedules under new guidelines," said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "To date, CAE has trained more than 1,000 pilots for Cebu Pacific Air and we look forward to training many more pilots with the most innovative training equipment, best instructors and through COVID-19 safe operational measures. We have a strong commitment to training for safety, and we thank Cebu for their trust.’’

"We are thrilled to begin training our pilots closer to home,’’ said Mike Szucs, Chief Executive Advisor, Cebu Pacific Air. “The new training agreement and deployment of brand-new CAE ATR 72-600 FFS in the region remain instrumental in supporting the development of Cebu’s pilots, and it is a testament to our commitment to delivering the highest level of safety and passenger experience.’’

The ATR 72-600 FFS comes with the most recent Standard from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and includes the extended motion envelope allowing trainees to perform Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT).  The ATR 72-600 FFS is a great addition complementing the three Airbus A320 FFS that are already installed and servicing the market.

As part of the partnership with Cebu, CAE trains the airline’s pilots on the Airbus A320 and A330 platforms at CAE Kuala Lumpur and CAE Hong Kong. The new CAE ATR 72-600 full-flight simulator (FFS) deployed to the CAE Clark training centre will support this new training agreement.
