SEATTLE, July 14, 2008 – Alteon Training, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA), announced today it will place a Boeing 787 training suite, including a full-flight simulator, at its training center in Miami, Florida.
The Miami training center will be ready for training in March 2010 to meet the training requirements of airlines based in Latin America and the United States. Prior to moving to Miami, the training suite will be installed at the Alteon Seattle training center. The Alteon 787 training suite includes fullflight and flat panel simulators and desktop simulation systems, offering complete training services for flight and maintenance training. This initial installment will support the introduction of the 787 airplane into the marketplace, bringing the number of 787 suites in Seattle to two during the introductory period. The first Seattle based 787 full flight simulator was installed in January of this year.
“We will have two training suites available in Seattle to support customer introduction of the Dreamliner. This will ensure our customers receive the training they need to maximize the use of their 787 fleet,” said Alteon President Sherry Carbary.
“We continue to work closely with Boeing and our customers to determine the locations where 787 training will be most needed as the 787 fleets grow around the world. By 2010, Miami will be an important location to serve our customers’ ongoing training needs,” Carbary added.
Alteon previously announced it would install 787 training suites in Tokyo, London, Shanghai and Singapore as well as Seattle and Minneapolis/St. Paul.
