In order to meet rising global demand for pilots — nearly 500,000 new flight crew by 2032 — Boeing is expanding its worldwide pilot training offerings. In Europe, Boeing Flight Services has added a new advanced 787 simulator to its preexisting two at London’s Gatwick Airport.
“A robust global training network doesn’t just serve Boeing, but airlines around the world and the industry as a whole,” said Bob Bellitto, a director at Boeing Flight Services. “There’s no question that there’s an urgent need for more aviation personnel around the world. These new flight training devices are a demonstration of Boeing’s commitment to the aviation industry, to meet its growing needs and those of our customers around the world.”boeing
