Will Include China's First 787 Full-Flight Simulator
Boeing subsidiary Alteon Training
announced this week it will open a new training center in Shanghai,
which will house the first Boeing 787 full-flight simulator in
China. In addition, Alteon has signed a partnership agreement with
Shanghai Airlines to co-locate the training center at Shanghai
Airline's newly opened training center at the Pudong Airport.
The training center will be fully operational by the end of 2007
with placement of a 757/767 full flight simulator to accommodate
Shanghai Airlines and other regional operators. The 787 full
flight simulator with complete Boeing 787 training services
including flight and maintenance training, will be ready in the
first half 2008.
Shanghai Airlines, together with four other Chinese airlines,
have placed 60 orders for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airline is
scheduled to receive its first Boeing 787 in time for the Beijing
Olympics, starting August 2008.
"We are expanding our training capabilities in this important
part of the world and this partnership with Shanghai Airlines will
provide training solutions at a new, world-class training facility
located at one of the newest and most advanced airports in China,"
said Alteon President Sherry Carbary. "It also provides Shanghai
Airlines, and other Chinese carriers, with a convenient east coast
location that will minimize travel time for their training
"Shanghai Airlines is pleased to partner with Alteon to provide
Boeing 787 training capabilities to our own pilots as well as that
of other leading airlines in the region" said Mr. Zhou Chi,
chairman of Shanghai Airlines. "We will be able to capitalize on
the resources of The Boeing Company to ensure that our flight crew
is well-trained and ready to begin commercial service on our fleet
of Boeing 787 aircraft."
Alteon previously announced it would install 787 simulators in
nine locations worldwide including Tokyo, London and Singapore as
well as location in India and the United States. The final
locations are yet to be announced.
