Boeing to add 1 more 787 flight simulator
Seattle, August 1, 2013
Boeing is set to enhance its flight training support for customers of the 787 Dreamliner with an additional full-flight simulator at the Boeing Flight Services campus in London.
The new device will be ready for training in the first quarter of 2014 and will join two other 787 flight simulators currently used for training airline pilots in London, said a statement.
The third 787 simulator at the London Gatwick campus will expand Boeing capabilities in support of the growing needs of customers in Middle East, Europe and Africa who are taking deliveries of the Dreamliner, it said.
“Boeing is working hard to provide superior support and give every competitive advantage to our 787 customers around the world as they introduce this revolutionary new airplane to their fleets,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services.
Boeing launched European 787 training in London in October 2010 with an advanced suite of training devices including a full-flight simulator, a flight training device, a cabin safety trainer and maintenance training classrooms.
It also installed a second 787 full-flight simulator at the London Gatwick campus in January, to better support customer training needs in Europe.
The new training will also include an additional 787 fixed-base flight training device. - TradeArabia News Service
