June 25, 2015
CAE Oxford Aviation Academy and EVA Air have launched a new Multi-crew Pilot License (MPL) First Officer program. Under the agreement, CAE will select, assess and train 60 cadets over the next 12 months. The aspiring pilots will start their training at CAE Oxford Aviation Academy in Phoenix, USA and training is scheduled to begin this month. Taiwan-based EVA Air has been a CAE customer since 2002, originally purchasing simulation equipment and now entrusting CAE in forming its future first officers.
EVA Air, a Star Alliance member, was formed in 1989 as Taiwan's first privately owned international airline. It is part of the respected Evergreen Group and a sister company to global container-shipping leader Evergreen Line. It flies to more than 60 international destinations throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and North America with a fleet of close to 70 Boeing and Airbus aircraft. With just one easy stop in Taipei, travelers can connect onward to most major cities throughout Asia, including more than 30 destinations in China.
