Worldwide flight training provider CAE yesterday held the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newest training center near Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport. The 50,000-sq-ft facility is the company’s first on the U.S. West Coast and began operations late last year.

With a capacity for a total of eight full-flight simulators, the center is already equipped with seven—representing the Bombardier Global 7500; Gulfstream G650, G550, GV, and GIV; and Embraer ERJ-145 and Phenom 300E. The latter is the Phenom simulator deployed globally as part of the Embraer CAE Training Services joint venture.

The facility added 75 jobs to the local economy and will train more than 2,500 pilots annually, according to CAE.

“The inauguration of CAE Las Vegas is another significant milestone in the expansion of our business aviation training network, bringing CAE closer to customers on the West Coast and beyond,” said company president and CEO Marc Parent. “Offering a strategic location, an attractive business environment, and a highly specialized workforce, Nevada is the perfect location for CAE’s first West Coast business aviation training center. We are proud to officially call the Silver State home, and we are grateful to Nevadans for their support and warm welcome.”
