The initial focus of the facility will primarily be simulator training on Boeing aircraft types, supporting SIA Group airlines (Singapore Airlines, SIA Cargo, SilkAir, and Scoot) and other operators in the region.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to build a flight training centre in Singapore.

The centre will operate out of the SIA Training Centre (STC) near Changi Airport.

The JV will provide simulator training for Boeing aircraft types that addresses pilot training needs in the region. "Together with CAE's expertise, we are positive that it will be a leading training facility for Boeing aircraft types in the Asia-Pacific region".

CAE president and CEO Marc Parent said, "Building on our relationship of more than 40 years, we are extremely honoured to join forces with Singapore Airlines and welcome this opportunity to leverage the strengths of our combined organisations to support the growing pilot training needs in the Asia-Pacific region - one of the fastest growing markets in commercial aviation".

CAE, which in addition to civil aviation training also provides training services in defense/ security and healthcare markets, released its fiscal 2018 first-quarter financial results August 10, reporting C$63.8 million ($49 million) in net profit (down 7.1% year-over-year) and C$698.9 million in revenue, up 7.3% from last year.

Singapore Airlines aims to take passengers beyond the confines of the cabin on an epic journey across the island state with its new in-flight safety video. "CAE is dedicated to offering customers the most innovative training solutions to achieve the highest levels of safety and efficiency".

The closing of the transaction is subject to execution of definitive transaction documents and customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.
