Boeing is adding and repositioning a number of flight training devices, which includes new capabilities for training on Next-Gen 737, 777 and 787 aircraft.
Boeing Flight Services, a business unit of Commercial Aviation Services, said it will install two new full-flight simulators—a 777 and Next-Gen 737—at its Singapore training campus. The simulators are expected to be ready for training in early to mid-2014 to support growing pilot training needs and increasing airplane deliveries in the Asia-Pacific region.
“The added 737 training capability will also help meet demand as customers in Indonesia, Japan, Korea and China take delivery of new airplanes. Airlines in China and Indonesia as well as in the Middle East and Africa will benefit from the increased 777 training capacity,” Boeing said in a statement.
Boeing said this year it installed a new 787 full-flight simulator at its London Gatwick campus, the second 787 simulator at that site. Additionally, as part of a consolidation of North America training, Boeing has located two 787 simulators at the Flight Services campus in Miami, Fla. Those simulators are expected to be ready for training customers in the summer of 2013, the manufacturer said.
