BAA Training is establishing a 5,300 square-meter training centre near Barcelona – El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport. The new facility will become home to a Boeing 737 NG, Airbus A320 ceo/neo and a Boeing 737 MAX 8 full flight simulator. The opening of the new training centre is set for Q1 2021.
The new FFS will be manufactured by L3Harris Technologies and is expected to start operations in Q2, 2021. With the upcoming re-certification of this Boeing commercial aircraft program, the demand for 737 MAX pilot training is expected to grow.
The new pilot training spot in Spain will also welcome a new FFS type for the company – Boeing 737 MAX 8, manufactured by L3Harris Technologies. With the upcoming re-certification of this Boeing commercial aircraft program, the demand for 737 MAX pilots’ training is expected to grow, especially in H1 2021, when the training device is planned to be ready at BAA Training Spain.
BAA Training Spain is set to operate six simulators by 2021, accommodate more than 44,000 flight hours and provide recurrent pilot training for approximately 4,300 pilots annually.
