Through our partnership with CAE, we are giving pilots access to the highest standard of training from the very beginning of their flying career.”

"Loganair graduates will be on the fast-track to success as they launch their careers in aviation,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “Training partnerships such as this one bring innovative pilot solutions to the industry. CAE’s forward-thinking approach will create excellent opportunities for Loganair, and we congratulate our airline partner for its continued success.”
