Boeing to expand aviation training in Russia
Boeing announced it will expand its flight and maintenance training capabilities in Russia with a new, state-of-the-art training campus. The new full-service training facility— set to open in 2015—will be located in the Skolkovo Innovation Center in Moscow. Boeing will work in cooperation with Industrial Investors Group and their 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.
