The CAE is going to expand business aviation pilot training in Central Europe by adding a new training centre in the second half of 2024.

The flight training company said the new facility will have six full-flight simulators which offer advanced pilot training on the latest light and large-cabin business jets. The company has not yet announced the country for the new hub.

“CAE’S new training centre in Central Europe will add much-needed training capacity in the region and bring us closer to where our customers operate their aircraft,” said Nick Leontidis, group president of Civil Aviation, CAE. “CAE is expanding its business aviation training network in strategic locations to help the industry meet the global requirement for an additional 45,000 business aviation pilots over the next ten years.”

CAE currently has 20 training locations for pilots, crew and maintenance across Europe, including a business aviation pilot training centre in London.

Earlier this month, CAE opened its first US West Coast business aviation training centre in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a new facility in Savannah, Georgia set to open later this year.
