CAE announced today that training has commenced at the CAE Simulation Training P.L. centre in Delhi, India's National Capital Region. The training centre is a joint venture between CAE and Interglobe. The centre currently houses two full-flight simulators providing training for airlines in India and the neighbouring region. With its six simulator bays, the centre will be able to train over 5,000 professionals per year, at full capacity.
"CAE is happy to continue meeting the growing needs of India's civil aviation community by bringing the National Capital Region a world-class training facility. We have developed excellent relationships with the leading carriers in India and have been expanding our presence in the region to offer an extensive range of aviation training solutions," said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "Pilots and aviation professionals from the region now have access to advanced training technology solutions in a facility that is close to home."
The centre is located on 3.5 acres in the Greater Noida Industrial Area, about 40 kilometers southeast of Delhi. The facility, equipped with two CAE Series 7000 A320s certified level D, provides "wet" and "dry" type-rating, recurrent, conversion and jet indoctrination training for commercial aircraft pilots. Programs are also offered for maintenance technicians and cabin crew. Students benefit from advanced training technology such as CAE Simfinity multimedia classrooms, computer-based training and brief/debrief facilities.
The Delhi centre is the fifth aviation training centre that CAE operates in India. CAE already trains more than 1,500 crewmembers every year at its training centre in Bengaluru, the first independent training centre in India and the first to earn approval as a fixed-wing Type Rating Training Organization (TRTO).
