CAE and LATAM Airlines Group (LATAM) announced another extension of their existing training agreement, adding six years to this longstanding training partnership. Over the terms of this renewed agreement, CAE will continue to train LATAM Airlines Group pilots and cabin crew at training centres throughout CAE’s network in South America, including at the recently inaugurated CAE Bogota training centre.

We are pleased to extend our longstanding partnership with LATAM Airlines Group until the end of 2030 and we thank them for their continued trust in CAE to provide pilot and cabin crew training at CAE centres located throughout South America,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “To meet the needs of our airline partners in the region, we have increased our training capacity by 40% over the past two years, and we now operate more than 25 full-flight simulators at CAE training centres in four South American countries.”
