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.
