Boeing and Korean Air break ground on new training facility
Boeing participated in a groundbreaking ceremony on November 25th, with Incheon and Korean Air for construction of Korea’s largest new aviation training facility to be located in Incheon’s Free Economic Zone (IFEZ). The new campus, which is slated to open in 2015, will allow Boeing to expand the scope of its training business in Korea and continue its long-standing training relationship with Korean Air. The facility, once complete, will house 12 full-flight simulators for pilot training programs supporting Korean Air’s flight training needs. Once the campus is complete, Boeing will relocate its existing training support staff and equipment to the new facility. Boeing will continue to provide all simulator training and pilot checking, as well as continued involvement in Korean Air’s program development, quality assurance and training operations scheduling.
