Will Retain Place As Business Unit Of BCAS
Boeing announced Thursday it is combining Alteon, its
wholly-owned training subsidiary, and existing training groups
within Boeing Commercial Airplanes to form a new, unified training
organization. The new training organization retains the Alteon name
as a business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.
"The combined expertise of our Commercial Airplanes and Alteon
teams will better serve our customers' training needs by providing
them with a more comprehensive suite of aviation training and
flight services," said Lou Mancini, vice president and general
manager of Commercial Aviation Services. "This is yet another way
that Boeing is helping to ensure our airline customers operate more
The new organization takes advantage of both Commercial
Airplanes and Alteon resources to provide customers with a single
integrated business that encompasses all development, deployment
and delivery of aviation training and flight services. It also
supports both customers who need courseware and instructor-led
training as well as those who need only to rent simulator time.
In addition, for those customers who have invested in their own
simulators, Alteon can provide Boeing data and hardware to operate
the simulators as well as updates and upgrades.
"With the new organization, we will be able to present a single
face to the customer across our global network and a consistent
level of excellence in aviation services," said Sherry Carbary,
president of Alteon. "This consolidation reinforces our commitment
to pursuing innovative solutions to meet our customers' needs by
providing a comprehensive portfolio of capabilities in training and
flight services delivered by our skilled and impassioned work
The new organization includes 1,400 training professionals.
Alteon serves more than 400 customers around the world, delivering
330 training programs accepted by more than 100 regulatory
authorities. It has more than 100 full-flight simulators in 20
locations on six continents.
