PARIS 2009: Emirates-CAE Flight Training to train pilots for flydubai

18th June 2009 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) has signed a five-year contract with flydubai for initial and recurrent pilot training for the airline's fleet of Boeing 737-800s.

The training programme at the Dubai centre will include simulator training on ECFT's Boeing 737NG Level D full-flight simulator as well as enhanced crew resource management (CRM) and classroom-based training, which includes safety and emergency procedures (SEP) training, reduced vertical separation minima (RVSM), dangerous goods and jet orientation general operating subjects (GOS).

"ECFT will offer flydubai a customised solution combining simulator and classroom training aimed at efficiently preparing the airline's pilots to operate the new aircraft," said Walter Visser, vice-president and managing director, ECFT.

"Training our pilots near our base of operation is of utmost importance to us as it significantly reduces travel related to training and in turn helps improve our cost-effectiveness," said Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai. "Not only will our pilots train close to home, but they will benefit from ECFT's latest world-class technologies and programmes."
