Turkish Airlines has purchased a 7000 Series Full Flight Simulator (FFS) representing the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from CAE.

The Boeing 777-300ER FFS will be delivered to the Turkish Airlines Flight Training Centre in 2010, along with a CAE Simfinity Integrated Procedures Trainer (IPT) for the Boeing 737NG. The contract renews a relationship between Turkish Airlines and CAE which began in 1997.

Dr. Temel Kotil, CEO and Member of Board of Turkish Airlines said there will be more simulator orders to bring Turkish Airlines Flight Training Facility a global brand.

We are very pleased that Turkish Airlines has selected CAE's new generation flight simulation solutions, said Jeff Roberts, CAEs Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. CAE has been proud to serve THY's flight training needs for more than a decade, and look forward to being a strong partner as Turkish Airlines continues to grow its global business.

The Boeing 777-300ER FFS is expected to be qualified to JAR Level D, the highest standard for full-flight simulators, by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Turkey and other National Aviation Authorities.
