Air New Zealand officially opened its new pilot training facility, which houses a 777 simulator, classrooms and computerized training equipment. The design of the complex allows for additional simulator halls in the future, one of which is already under construction to house Air Nelson's Q300 simulator. ANZ currently operates four flight simulators within a nearby facility that are used for pilot training on 737-300s/400s/500s, 767-200s, 747-400s and A320s.
