Vietnam's National Carrier Vietnam Airlines has partnered with International Pilot Training Group and Simulator Manufacturer CAE for its Simulator Pilot Training Center the Vietnam Airlines Flight Training Center. The Vietnam Airlines Training Center was opened in 1998 in Ho Chi Minh City for both the Pilot Training and Flight Attendant Training of Vietnam Airlines. Since then training is done not only for Vietnamese Airlines but also for other smaller Airlines from countries such as Cambodia, India, Singapore and Australia. In 2018 Vietnam Airlines together with CAE opened the Flight Simulator complex as Vietnam Airlines wanted to localized the training of its pilots for the three aircraft types: Airbus A320, Airbus A350 and Boeing B787.

The Vietnam Airlines Flight Training Center (also known as CAE Ho Chi Minh City) has 2 Airbus A320, 1 Airbus A350 and 1 Boeing B787 Full Flight Simulators and holds training such as Type Rating and Recurrency Training. The Simulators are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, Cambodian SSCA and European Union Aviation Safety Agency.

The Simulator Training Center is ideally located only 10 minutes away from Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and is only one of two Simulator Pilot Training Centers in Vietnam (the other being the Vietjet Flight Training Center). In addition to the Simulator Training Center the Vietnam Airlines Training Center also has cabin crew simulators.

A member of the Skyteam Alliance, Vietnam Airlines operates 90 routes to 20 domestic and 29 international destinations with an average of 400 flights per day. It owns a fleet of modern aircraft, including Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Airbus A350-900 XWBs, Airbus A330s, and Airbus A321s.
