Rex has announced the acquisition of a Boeing 737 Full Flight Simulator (B737 FFS) from Boeing U.S. Training & Flight Services. The B737 FFS satisfies the qualification Level D requirements promulgated by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and will be used for type ratings, recurrent training, and proficiency checks. It is also certified for Upset Recovery Training (UPRT) and can be configured for a number of variants of the B737, including the B737-800, B737-700, and the B737 Boeing Business Jet (BBJ).

The B737 FFS will continue to be housed at and maintained by Ansett Aviation Training (AAT) in Brisbane. It will later be co-located with the SAAB 340 FFS at Rex’s Simulator Centre in Sydney when the latter is ready in two years’ time. Rex will make the B737 FFS available for use by other carriers, within Australia and internationally, whenever spare slots are available.

The acquisition of the Boeing 737 FFS bolsters Rex’s position in the domestic market by strengthening its training capabilities and demonstrates Rex’s long-term commitment to domestic operations in Australia.
