Pilots’ training facility to come up in Greater Noida : INTERGLOBE AND CAE JV’s

New Delhi: A pilots’ training facility, capable of providing advanced training to over 40,000 trained cockpit crew a year, would come up in Greater Noida in the next 14 months.
Aircraft manufacturer Airbus, Canada-based aviation technology major CAE and India’s InterGlobe have joined hands to set up this facility at an estimated cost of USD 100 million, which would be spent over the next few years, top officials of Airbus and CAE told PTI.
CAE and InterGlobe are the primary equity partners in this joint venture, while Airbus would provide the simulators, the curriculum and pilot trainers, they said, adding that both Indian and foreign pilots would be trained here.
Though it would not provide initial training to churn out fresh pilots, the facility would have six simulators, each capable of providing advanced training and refresher courses to estimated 700 pilots annually, Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President ( Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services) said
