CAE announced today that Transport Canada has awarded earlier this summer Interim Level C qualification for the world’s first airline operated Boeing 737MAX full-flight simulator.

Officials from Transport Canada granted its qualification following final evaluation of the CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulator (FFS) and CAE 500XR Series flight training device located at Air Canada’s training centre in Toronto.

"The Interim Level C qualification of our 737MAX FFS from CAE has been granted for one year, which is a testament to the stability of the training simulator as well as the motion and visual systems' realism", said Bruce Campbell, Director of Training and Safety, Air Canada. "We greatly value the complementarity of CAE's training equipment portfolio, from the flight training device to the full-flight simulator".

"Achieving qualification of the world's first airline operated full-flight simulator marks an important milestone, which highlights CAE's technology leadership and the many years of collaborative efforts with our longstanding partners," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. "This also represents the first delivery of 12 Boeing 737MAX FFSs already on order with airlines around the world. It is an honor to play a key role in the introduction of new commercial aircraft fleet type and we are committed to continue supporting our partners long into the future."
