Established in 1993, the school specializes in training ab initio
students to become multi-engine instrument-rated airline first
officers. Graduates then earn aircraft type ratings at the Zhuhai
Flight Training Centre, a joint venture between China Southern Airlines
and CAE in Zhuhai, Guandong province, China.
"This joint venture acquisition is another step towards developing
our training network in order to better address the global pilot
shortage. As many as 18,000 new pilots will be needed per year over
the next 20 years globally and one of the highest demands is expected
to be in China,” said Marc Parent, CAE’s President and CEO. “We are
very pleased that our long-time partner, China Southern Airlines, has
chosen CAE to meet its growing need for the highest-quality entry-level
pilots. Our plan in Australia is to grow the flight school and leverage
the best practices in training we apply throughout the CAE Global
The China Southern West Australian Flying College is the 11th
location for the CAE Global Academy, the world's largest network of ab
initio flight training organizations with a capacity of training more
than 1,800 pilot cadets annually. The CAE Global Academy also provides
training in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
"Our extremely positive relationship with CAE for training
world-class pilots in Zhuhai and our evaluation of the CAE Global
Academy operations led us to conclude that CAE is the clear choice to
help train cadet pilots for our airline," said Si Xian Min, Chairman of
China Southern Airlines.
The CSWAFC operates from two training bases, Jandakot Airport just
south of Perth and Merredin Airport about 250 km east of the Western
Australia capital. The facilities have capacity for more than 280
cadets and include 45 single-engine and twin-engine turboprop aircraft
and high-performance jets, onsite aircraft maintenance, flight
simulation training devices, classrooms, and living accommodations.

of a cinema both strangely familiar and refreshingly different,” says Artistic
Director Matt Ravier.
“This year we invite everyone to join us as we discover
a cinema as entertaining as it is thought-provoking, infused with courage,
