Shanghai-based G450/G550 simulator certified to Level D
CAE has announced that its CAE-built Gulfstream G450/G550 full-flight simulator (FFS) in Shanghai, China, has received Level D certification by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). The training program will be offered at the Shanghai Eastern Flight Training Centre (SEFTC), in Shanghai Pudong Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone starting in early 2013.
“We have been serving the aviation community in China for more than 20 years; we’ve sold more than 65 commercial aviation simulators to airlines in China over the years and we operate one of the largest training centres in China; we are pleased to expand our presence and to now offer business aviation training,” said Jeff Roberts, CAE group president, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services.
“China and other areas of Asia are emerging as business aviation growth markets and we are leveraging CAE’s long history in the region to bring training and services close to where our customers operate,” Roberts concluded.
