CAE has introduced a new training alliance intended to address the global shortage of pilots called CAE Global Academy. The alliance involves a network of flight training organizations that offer pilot candidates training for a commercial pilots license and a clear path, via the global CAE training network, for gaining a type rating and career as an airline pilot.

The Canada-based flight training group has signed alliance agreements with the International Airline Training Academy (IATA), based in Tucson, Arizona; HM Aerospace (HMA), based in Langkawi, Malaysia; and Academia Aeronautica de Evora (AAE), based in Evora, Portugal. CAE remains in talks with other organizations in various locations throughout the world, particularly in areas experiencing a critical pilot shortage.

Flight training organizations that joined the CAE alliance continue to offer traditional ab initio training, while CAE provides type-rating qualifications through its global training network. The three current partners carry capacity to graduate and license more than 600 pilots a year. Global Academy aims to eventually produce more than 2,000 annually.
