Air New Zealand purchases Boeing 787 and 777-300 simulators
Air New Zealand has purchased Boeing 787 and Boeing 777-300 full-flight simulators to be based at its Auckland simulator centre.
The Boeing 777 simulator will be delivered in 2010 to coincide with the arrival of Air New Zealand’s new 777-300 aircraft and the Boeing 787 simulator in 2012.
Air New Zealand already operates 747, 777-200ER, 767, 737, Airbus A320 and Bombardier Q300/Q100 simulators at its flight simulator training centre at Auckland Airport, training its own pilots and those of other airlines.
In addition to the simulators, supplier CAE is also providing a suite of CAE Simfinity training devices for each aircraft type, including integrated procedures trainers (IPTs), virtual simulators (VSIMs), and virtual maintenance trainers (VMTs). The training devices will be used for both pilot and maintenance training.
