Boeing (NYSE: BA) said it has place several new full-flight simulators that expand capabilities for pilot training globally, while bringing more training closer to where airlines operate.
Two simulators are now ready for training at the Boeing Flight Services Singapore campus. Another 787 Dreamliner simulator has also been placed at the London Gatwick campus where two other 787 simulators are already located. Boeing serves its customers through a global network on six continents, including eight advanced 787 training suites in Miami, London, Singapore and Shanghai.
“A robust global training network doesn´t just serve Boeing, but airlines around the world and the industry as a whole,” said Bob Bellitto, director, Customer Group, Boeing Flight Services. “There´s no question that there´s an urgent need for more aviation personnel around the world. These new flight training devices are a demonstration of Boeing´s commitment to the aviation industry, to meet its growing needs and those of our customers around the world.”
