easyJet Signs Long-Term Training Agreement With CAE

Will Provide Training At Multiple Centers Under $130 Million Contract

CAE has signed a long-term training contract with easyJet valued at more than C$170 million (approx $130 U.S.) over the next 10 years. Under the agreement, all of easyJet’s pilots will train at CAE, which will expand its training network to provide the airline with three new European pilot training locations, equipped with a fleet of CAE’s latest XR Series flight simulators. CAE will provide easyJet with state-of-the-art pilot training solutions at training centers located in London Gatwick and Manchester in the UK, as well as Milan, Italy.

CAE will build a new state-of-the-art training center in London-Gatwick with a dedicated space to serve easyJet’s training needs and will deploy nine Airbus A320-family full-flight simulators (FFSs) and three flight training devices (FTDs) in the new London Gatwick center, and two additional training locations in Manchester, UK and Milan, Italy. The centres will be ready for training starting in the second half of 2019.

"The safety and welfare of our customers and crew is easyJet’s number one priority and by choosing CAE as our training partner of choice and investing in the most advanced technologies, we not only continue to enhance the quality of our pilot training, we maintain and enhance our commitment to safety," said Chris Browne, easyJet’s Chief Operating Officer. "This represents one of the biggest deals of its kind in Europe in the last five years and we are pleased to be working with CAE as a trusted and highly innovative training provider to help ensure easyJet is a center of excellence for crew training.”

"This agreement is based on training excellence and represents a major step forward in the evolution of CAE’s relationship with easyJet. It’s a prime example of CAE’s commitment to provide our airline partners with the most innovative training solutions and to deliver the greatest training experience," said Marc Parent, CAE’s president and Chief Executive Officer. As well, our expanded footprint will help us address customer demand by further strengthening CAE’s presence in the UK and Europe.”

easyJet will be utilizing the latest generation of flight simulators, including the CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulator with enhanced features such as the next-generation instructor office for improved training efficiency and embedded training capabilities to address new EASA regulations related to Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). easyJet will also be the first airline to train its pilots using CAE’s latest generation of FTDs, the CAE 600XR Series flight training device (FTD) with CAE Tropos™ 6000XR collimated visual system and a fully enclosed instructor area. The CAE 600XR FTD adds flexibility to easyJet’s training curriculum with the highest training device fidelity available in the fixed base training market. Offering the same simulation fidelity as the CAE 7000XR Series FFS and common features including CAE XR simulation fidelity and instructor interface, CAE XR lesson and flight plan upload capabilities, the CAE 600XR FTD ensures easyJet pilots will receive training following the highest industry standards in an environment that is consistent across all platforms.

During easyJet’s fiscal year 2018 ending September 30, 2018, the airline has recruited 460 pilots – a pilot recruitment record for the airline for a third consecutive year as easyJet continues to expand its operation across Europe. In the last year alone easyJet has added bases to its network in Berlin Tegel and Bordeaux and now flies over 1,000 routes on over 300 Airbus A320 family aircraft. In July 2018 easyJet took delivery of the first of 30 A321neo aircraft which will bring significant environmental, operational and cost benefits to its operation.
