Boeing is enhancing its flight training support for customer airlines in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas by adding and repositioning a number of flight training devices within its global network and includes new capabilities for training on Next-Generation 737, 777 and 787 Dreamliners. Boeing Flight Services will install two new full flight simulators – a 777 and Next-Generation 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.
A 600gram tablet PC is replacing about five kilos of paper within pilot training at Cockpit4u. From April 2013 Cockpit4u will introduce the 'Electronic Cockpit4u Bag' (ECB) for all type rating courses on Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier. Each trainee of the German TRTO will be provided with an Android device which digitally presents the entire training documents, except the QRH, the Training Manual and the grading record.
