Boeing Consolidating Flight Training in Miami

The move includes 787 flight and maintenance training and maximizes use of its Boeing Flight Services training campus, which is the preferred location and customers from Latin America, Europe, and elsewhere, the company announced.

Fulfilling a plan announced in 2008, Boeing will consolidate its flight training capabilities in North America -- including 787 flight and maintenance training -- at the Boeing Flight Services training campus in Miami. All full-flight simulators and other devices will be moved immediately from Seattle to Miami, starting with two 787 training suites.

Miami is Boeing's largest commercial aviation training campus and is preferred by customers in Latin America, the United States, the Middle East, Europe, and elsewhere, according to the March 8 announcement.

"This is about getting close to our customers, doing what is right for them, and bringing them the best product support and services in the industry," said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Flight Services, Commercial Aviation Services. "If we are going to better serve our customers and meet training commitments and airplane deliveries as we ramp up on rate, the time to do this is now."

The Miami facility has 20 simulator bays, but only 11 training devices are installed there now. Some employees will be impacted by the planned consolidation, Carbary said.
