CAE Business Aviation is a global leader in the design, development, and delivery of the industry’s most advanced training and digital tools for optimizing daily operations. Today, we are creating ever better, smarter, and more future-minded programs and solutions, elevating and advancing human performance at every operational level to deliver greater efficiencies and superior outcomes for business aviation operators the world over. Our on-going investment in business aviation is unmatched in the industry.

Beyond a constant evolution of the world's most advanced training tools and technologies, we’re also adding much-needed capacity and increasing accessibility with facilities like our new Central Europe Business Aviation Training Centre, scheduled to open next year in Vienna, Austria. The centre will have a capacity for up to six full-flight simulators, offering advanced pilot training on the latest light- and large-segment business jets. The new business aviation training centre, the company’s first in the region, is scheduled to open in the second half of 2024.

“CAE’s new training centre in Central Europe will add much-needed training capacity in the region and bring us closer to where our customers operate their aircraft,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation. “CAE is expanding its business aviation training network in strategic locations to help the industry meet the global requirement for an additional 45,000 business aviation pilots over the next ten years.*”

This announcement marks another milestone in the expansion of CAE’s business aviation training network. On April 4, 2023, CAE inaugurated its first U.S. West Coast business aviation training centre in Las Vegas, Nevada, and a new facility in Savannah, Georgia is set to open later this year.
