CAE and easyJet Open Training Centre in Milan, Italy

CAE and easyJet have opened a training centre near Milan Malpensa airport in Lombardy, Italy.

After London Gatwick and Manchester, this is the third new training centre that CAE has inaugurated in the last month to support the pilot training needs of easyJet across Europe.

The brand new CAE Milan training centre currently operates three new CAE 7000XR Series Airbus A320 FFSs equipped with the CAE Tropos 6000XR visual system.

These FFSs will be joined by CAE’s latest 600XR Airbus A320 flight training device (FTD) equipped with CAE Tropos 6000XR collimated visual system and a fully enclosed instructor area in December 2019.

easyJet will be the first airline company to train its pilots on the CAE’s 600XR FTD, adding flexibility to the airline’s training curriculum with the highest training device fidelity available in the fixed-base training market.

“With this enhanced training network, CAE will now have the capacity to train over 35,000 commercial pilots in Europe, including more than 2,000 pilots per year at the new CAE Milan training center,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “The CAE Milan training center is a state-of-the-art facility which features modern debriefing rooms and classrooms, and the latest technology. We are happy to welcome easyJet pilots to CAE Milan as they start training on CAE’s latest-generation of full-flight simulators, and we thank easyJet for their partnership and continued trust.”

With 34 aircraft based in Italy, a maximum of 500 daily operations, and almost 19 million passengers carried in the last financial year, easyJet is the third-largest airline in the country.

The airline started its operations in Italy in 1998 and opened its first Italian base in Malpensa in 2006 which became its second largest base in continental Europe with more than 70 million passengers carried and 21 based aircraft.

In addition to training all easyJet’s pilots, CAE also provides cadet training for easyJet in its European aviation academy network in Brussels, Madrid, Oslo and Oxford.
