SEATTLE. Boe­ing an­nounced March 28 it has of­fi­cially launched its global net­work of Boe­ing Train­ing Providers, adding three new schools to sup­port its Pilot De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme. The flight schools – Avion Train­ing, part of Avion Group in the Nether­lands, In­ter­na­tional Airline Train­ing Acad­emy (IATA) in Napa, CA, and SAA In­ter­na­tional (SAA), a sub­sidiary of Ve­loc­ity Ed­u­ca­tion, in San Diego, CA – were sub­ject to a rig­or­ous re­view process be­fore re­ceiv­ing fi­nal ac­cep­tance to be part of the Boe­ing Pilot De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram net­work.

“With these three top-tier schools, we are re­mov­ing the bur­den of iden­ti­fy­ing and vet­ting po­ten­tial schools for our cus­tomers,” said David Wright, Boe­ing Pilot De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme di­rec­tor. “Cus­tomers can trust that Boe­ing has done the leg work so they can fo­cus on what they do best – flying peo­ple and cargo around the world.”

The Boe­ing Pilot De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme is a fully in­te­grated so­lu­tion that takes cadet pi­lots through ini­tial screen­ing, English train­ing, ab ini­tio (ba­sic class­room and flight in­struc­tion), jet bridge and type rat­ing train­ing at Boe­ing Train­ing Providers and Boe­ing train­ing cam­puses around the world to en­sure an ef­fi­cient, con­sis­tent and ef­fec­tive pipe­line for air­lines to se­cure qual­i­fied first of­fi­cers.

The 2016 Pilot and Tech­ni­cian Out­look projects a need for 617,000 new pi­lots in the next 20 years. That equates to a need for nearly 31,000 new com­mer­cial airline pi­lots and more than 33,000 new main­te­nance tech­ni­cians glob­ally each year.
