CAE signs new 3-year agreement with Monarch Airlines for pilot training & resourcing services

November 05, 2015

Monarch Airlines has selected CAE for a new pilot resourcing and A320 type-rating training program in the UK. In addition, CAE will provide A320 simulation services in an exclusive 3-year contract.

As part of the pilot resourcing and training programme, Monarch has committed to recruit up to 60 CAE Oxford Aviation Academy cadet graduates before the end of 2017. The assessment and selection of the graduates will be provided to Monarch by CAE Oxford Aviation Academy’s pilot selection specialists in line with the airline’s specific requirements for new pilots. Once selected, the graduates will complete a self-sponsored A320 type rating training program delivered by CAE at its training locations in London Gatwick and Manchester.

To date, 20 cadets have been selected and completed A320 type-rating training for Monarch Airlines, with more graduate candidates expected to begin assessment soon.

Monarch Airlines has also selected CAE for the provision of A320 simulation services at London Gatwick and Manchester over the next 3 years. Having been a customer at these training locations for almost 10 years, Monarch Airlines has now signed an exclusive agreement for the use of these facilities.

“We are delighted that Monarch Airlines has selected CAE to secure its future pipeline of new pilots through a customized pilot provisioning and training solution,” said Nick Leontidis. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Monarch Airlines to meet their ongoing requirements over the next 3 years.”
