The understanding between Boeing and the Indonesia Ministry of Transportation focuses on the development of an advanced aviation training center and Infrastructure including the establishment of ab initio – or initial – pilot training and commercial jet pilot type training programs in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency regulations.
