Alteon Achieves European Part 147 Approval for Maintenance Training

Something New In Europe

Boeing's subsidiary, Alteon Training, has been approved as a Maintenance Training Organization under the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 147 regulations.
 
"This is a new and exciting venture for our European business", said Andy McIntosh, regional vice president for Europe. "As the leading provider of Boeing training, we are now fully able to support our customers throughout the region, bringing the same quality and commitment to customer service for which Boeing is famous to the third-party maintenance training business."

Alteon currently offers B1 and B2 type-rating courses for the 737-600/-700/-800/-900 models and will quickly extend this capability to cover the entire Boeing fleet. The 737-300/-400/-500, 757 and 767 models are scheduled for approval this summer with the remaining Boeing models to follow by yearend.

In response to increasing customer demand, Airbus types will be added in the future. "We're looking to pursue partnering agreements with some of the world's leading maintenance and training organizations to develop an unprecedented range of customer-focused training solutions, ultimately offering the customer greater choice, higher quality and better-value training solutions," said McIntosh.

Although the approval is based at the Manchester Training Centre in the United Kingdom, it also allows Alteon to provide EASA-approved maintenance training at any site in its global network of 20 training centers in 10 countries on six continents. Alteon even can send its training experts to airline customers' own facilities, expanding the range of customer-partnering solutions available.

Alteon Training is the world's preferred aviation training partner and the industry leader in providing customer-focused aviation training solutions. The company provides customers an expanding and integrated services portfolio that includes flight, technical, and cabin-crew training, and training materials.
Alteon is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company within Boeing Commercial Airplanes' Commercial Aviation Services group. The training organization supports the world's aviation community with more than 70 full flight simulators in 20 locations around the world.
