CAE Obtains Level D Flight Simulator Qualification; Nick Leontidis Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

CAE

CAE has achieved the highest certification for its full-flight simulator from the Federal Aviation Administration and other aviation regulatory bodies in Europe.

The FAA, the Directorate General for Civil Aviation in France and the European Aviation Safety Agency granted the Level D qualification to CAE's A350 XWB full-flight simulator, the company said Tuesday.

“Achieving Level D qualification for the first A350 XWB simulator marks an important milestone, which highlights five years of collaborative efforts with Airbus in the development of the full-flight simulator,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s group president of civil aviation training services.

The A350 XWB simulator, along with the Airbus Pilot Transition and a flight management system trainer, is based at the Airbus training center in Toulouse, France.

A350 also obtained Level 6 qualification from the FAA and Level 2 from the DGAC/EASA for pilot common type ratings qualifications.
