TRU Simulation + Training Inc. has received purchase orders from Boeing for the production of two full flight simulator (FFS) suites for Boeing's newest twin-aisle airliner, the 777-9.
The purchase order for the two FFS suites follows an April 2016 announcement where the two companies entered into a multi-year agreement that established TRU as Boeing's supplier for the entire suite of 777-9 flight simulation training equipment. While the 2016 announcement called for TRU to provide one training suite consisting of a 777-9 full flight simulator and a high-fidelity classroom, Boeing has now increased its order by one additional training suite.
The two FFS suites will be delivered and installed in Boeing training campuses in Singapore and the United Kingdom. The suites are expected to be delivered and operational in the second half of 2019.
