Alteon Singapore Training Center opens to airlines


Singapore's Alteon Training Center Opens to Airlines

Alteon Training, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) begins operations today (2 Oct 2006) at its Singapore Training Center.
Airlines from Australia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and Taiwan are among the first to use its comprehensive training services.
An official opening for the center will be held in early 2007.
"We are pleased to add Singapore to our global network of training centers," said Patrick Gaines, Alteon president. "With this latest addition, Alteon now offers seven training locations in the Asia Pacific region further expanding our ability to meet the increasing demands for pilot and crew training in the region."
Gaines also noted his gratitude to the Government of Singapore in lending assistance and support setting up the training center. "Alteon is committed to delivering high quality aviation training programs in Singapore, one of the leading aviation hubs in the region," Gaines said.
Located near the Changi International Airport, the Singapore Training Center has the capability to train more than 6,000 student pilots and flight attendants per year.
The three-story state-of-the-art facility houses seven full flight simulator bays, a cabin emergency evacuation trainer and will host other advanced-technology training devices such as flat-panel trainers (FPT).
Student pilots and flight attendants use workstations equipped with self-guided computer based training, allowing them to progress at their own pace. The center has six classrooms, a training room and a student lounge.
Alteon offers training services at six other training centers in the Asia-Pacific region, including Brisbane and Melbourne, Australia, Seoul, South Korea; Kunming and Tianjin, China, and Tokyo, Japan. It is the world's preferred aviation training partner and the industry leader in providing customer-focused aviation training solutions.
Alteon is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company within Boeing Commercial Airplanes' Commercial Aviation Services group. The training organization supports the world's aviation community with more than 70 full flight simulators in over 20 locations around the world.
