Boeing has announced it will expand its flight and maintenance training capabilities in Russia with a new training campus. The new full-service training facility will be located in the Skolkovo Innovation Center in Moscow. Boeing will work in cooperation with Industrial Investors Group and its subsidiary Transas on the project. Initial capability will include flight, maintenance, and specialty training. Local maintenance training will be available across the spectrum of Boeing aircraft currently in operation, and flight training capability will include locally based instructors. The new facility will open with four simulator bays featuring three Next-Generation 737 full-flight simulators and one 777 full-flight simulator. Two of the simulators will be built by Transas. The facility is designed to allow for expansion to accommodate additional training capacity as required by customers. Groundbreaking on the new training and research campus is scheduled for spring 2014, with training beginning in mid-2015.
