Boeing selects supplier for 737 MAX full-flight simulator

Boeing announced July 11 the selection of TRU Simulation + Training Inc. as its supplier for state-of-the-art full-flight training suites for the 737 MAX.

The initial suite will include a full-flight simulator, a flat-panel training device and 10 desktop trainers which are anticipated to be ready for training in 2017 for customers new to both the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX.

Current Next-Generation 737 customers who will begin operating the MAX can continue training new pilots on one of 14 Next-Generation 737 full-flight simulators within the Boeing Flight Services training network followed by a short differences training course for the 737 MAX. Pilots already certified on the Next-Generation 737 will not require a simulator course to transition to the 737 MAX.

“Our flight training assets – including our state-of-the-art full-flight training suites – provide customers the benefit of Boeing’s knowledge and expertise while incorporating the highest standards in technology and simulation,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president of Boeing Flight Services, a business unit of Commercial Aviation Services. “We are pleased to be working with TRU Simulation + Training to deliver that high level of quality and fidelity to our customers.”

The 737 MAX has more than 2,000 orders from customers worldwide, the most successful launch in Boeing history. The new, efficient single-aisle airplane is on track to begin final assembly in mid-2015, fly in 2016 and deliver to launch customer Southwest Airlines in the third quarter of 2017.

“We are delighted with the continued trust Boeing has placed in our company, especially within the context of such an important commercial aircraft program,” said George Karam, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Simulation, TRU Simulation + Training. “Both Boeing and TRU are committed to offering high-fidelity training solutions to 737 MAX operators around the world, and our innovative technology and customer-first flexible approach help make us unique in working with aircraft manufacturers to support their customers.”

Boeing offers a comprehensive portfolio of commercial aviation services, collectively known as the Boeing Edge, bringing value and advantages to customers and the industry.
