Fiji Airways confirms acquisition of flight simulator for Fiji Aviation Academy

    Fiji Airways confirmed (23-Jun-2017) the acquisition of a CAE Boeing 737 MAX aircraft full simulator for the Fiji Aviation Academy. Fiji Airways MD and CEO Andre Viljoen stated: “This is one of the most important developments in Fiji Airways’ and Fiji’s aviation history. We are setting up a world-class aviation training academy which will have two full flight simulators installed during Phase 1 of the project. The partnership with CAE shows that we are progressing well with our plans. The next step will be the selection of a full simulator for widebody aircraft, followed by the development in Phase 2 of an ‘ab-initio’ cadet pilot training school with state-of-the-art fixed training devices.” Both simulators for Phase 1 are planned to be installed by late 2018.
