Boeing MAX for Crawley

Demand from airlines across Europe, the Middle East and Africa is causing Boeing to enhance its flight training services at Crawley, near Gatwick, with the unveiling of a new B737 MAX 8 simulator and construction of a new annex to accommodate the growth.

The annex will add four full-flight simulators to the current line-up of seven and when built will mean the Boeing Flight Services Centre will be the company’s largest of its kind outside the US.

Boeing Europe president and Boeing UK and Ireland managing director Sir Michael Arthur said demand for the company’s products and services was strong and it was  crucial the company should be able to meet it locally.

“This also continues our growth in the UK to support local customers and enhances further Boeing’s commitment to the UK and its economic prosperity,” he added.

The Crawley centre opened in September 2004 and trains pilots and technicians from airlines across the EMEA region. The current 4,900sq m facility houses several classrooms, fixed training devices and eight full-flight simulators.

These include four B787 machines (three B787-8 and one B787-9) plus full flight simulators for the B777, Next Generation B737 and a newly-installed B737 MAX 8 full flight simulator.
