Following the 2019 Dubai Airshow, CAE and Emirates announced the sale of two Boeing 777X full-flight simulators and associated training suites of the CAE XR Series models. The carrier also has options for four additional training suites. With orders of 126 Boeing 777X aircraft, Emirates is the biggest customer of the new upgraded 777 aircraft.  

“CAE is honored to support Emirates’ pilot training program as the airline readies for the entry-into-service of its new Boeing 777X fleet,’’ said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “We have been partners with Emirates for more than 25 years, and this latest program selection serves as a testament to the value CAE brings to its key airline partners.’’

Adel Al Redha, Chief Operating Officer for Emirates Airline said: “As we begin plans to integrate the Boeing 777X into our fleet over the course of the next two years, we are pleased to once again work with our longstanding partner CAE to provide our flight deck crew with best-in-class training technology, We want to ensure our flight deck crew are prepared to operate the B777X variants as they enter operation, and combined with CAE’s track record of execution and innovation, I am confident we will benefit from the best training equipment available.’’

CAE has won 4 out of 5 airline training programs for the new Boeing 777X aircraft. Emirates’ first brand-new Boeing 777X FFS will be delivered by the beginning of 2021. CAE announced in 2017, the sale of the world's first airline-operated Boeing 777X FFS to Lufthansa Aviation Training. In 2018, CAE sold three Boeing 777X FFSs to Qatar Airways and most recently CAE sold a Boeing 777X FFS to an undisclosed Asian airline.
