Boeing working with Indonesia to develop advanced aviation training solutions

Boeing signed a Memorandum of Understanding June 27 with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation to jointly work to establish advanced aviation training programs and training practices in accordance with globally recognized standards.

Under the terms of the memorandum, Boeing Flight Services and Indonesian officials will seek opportunities to develop flight, technician, dispatch and air traffic control training.

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Indonesia Ministry of Transportation to work together to meet the growing demand in the Indonesian market,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services. “Our collective goal is to make Indonesia a model for commercial aviation.”

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.

In addition the understanding seeks to align air traffic controller training programs to standards and equipment deployed throughout Indonesia and to align airline maintenance training programs with global standards of courseware, curriculum and the education and training of instructors, management and staff.

The Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook projects that the Southeast Asia region, including Indonesia, will require more than 47,000 new commercial airline pilots and more than 60,000 new maintenance technicians over the next 20 years to support economic and air travel growth and new airplane deliveries. Boeing is working on developing global solutions to meet this demand while providing a competitive edge to help customers and the industry succeed.

“The need for these kinds of solutions has never been more important, as Indonesia undergoes unprecedented growth,” said Captain Bobby Mamahit, director of the Indonesia Ministry of Transportation, Human Resource Development Agency. “Our need for world class training programs fits very well with the capabilities that Boeing is equipped to offer.”
