Boeing Announces Expansion Plans For Training Capabilities In Shanghai

New Offerings Support Low Cost Carriers In China

Boeing has expanded its training capabilities at its Flight Services campus in Shanghai to support customers in the region. Included in the new offerings are a Next-Generation 737 full-flight simulator and a state-of-the-art 737 maintenance training classroom.

“We are pleased to help our customers be more efficient and provide programs to ensure pilots and technicians are trained to the highest standard,” said Stan Deal, senior vice president, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.

The Boeing Shanghai Flight Services campus also includes one 747 full-flight simulator, one 757/767 full-flight simulator and one 787 full-flight simulator.

“With the growth of new low cost carriers in China, the need for additional training capabilities to support all our customers in the country is crucial,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services.

According to the 2015 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook, 100,000 pilots and 106,000 technicians will be needed in China through 2034.

China leads the Asia-Pacific region for demand of new commercial airplane deliveries over the next 20 years. By 2034, 6,330 new airplanes worth $950 billion will be needed for China, according to Boeing’s 2015 Current Market Outlook.

Boeing Flight Services provides flight, maintenance and cabin safety training to more than 400 customers through its network of 16 campuses on six continents. Flight Services also offers a range of services to support training centers, including simulator data packages and hardware, software modeling, and training operations and schedule management, as well as pilot provisioning services such as ferry flight support and flight crew line assist.
