FAA, EASA Approve CAE Training Tools
The FAA and EASA have granted certification for two CAE products: the CAE-built A350 XWB full-flight simulator (FFS) has achieved Interim Level C qualification, and the company’s flight training device (FTD) achieved FAA Level 6 and EASA Level 2 qualification.
"We were honored that Airbus selected us once again as a partner in their aircraft program and we are proud to have developed and qualified the world's first A350 XWB simulator ahead of the entry-into service of the aircraft," said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation and Training. "We have a long history of developing the first simulators for the majority of new commercial airliners, including the Airbus A380 and now the A350 XWB. Achieving the Level C qualification for the first A350 XWB simulator marks another important milestone for the A350 XWB program and we join Airbus customers in looking forward to its entry into service."
