Boeing Selects TRU as Supplier for 777X Full-Flight Simulator Suites

Boeing has selected TRU Simulation + Training as its supplier for the first 777X full-flight simulator suites for Boeings pro forma campuses.

Pro forma training is offered to customers as part of the airplane sale.

Each simulator suite will include a full-flight simulator and a high-fidelity, flat-panel classroom trainer.

TRU will also provide a simulator to assist with Boeings engineering development of the 777X. The suites are scheduled to be operational in 2019.

This is the second contract awarded to TRU to manufacture simulator suites for Boeing. In 2014, Boeing awarded the company a 737 MAX simulator contract, and Boeing currently has four full flight simulators on order.

We are delighted with the continued trust Boeing is placing in our company, which clearly identifies TRU as a leading supplier in the flight simulation and training industry, said George Karam, Vice President and General Manager, Air Transport division, TRU Simulation + Training. Boeing customers expect the highest standards of innovation, quality, fidelity and safety in their training programs, and Boeing has chosen TRU to provide exactly that.

Until the suites are operational, 777X customers can train current pilots in the 777 full-flight simulator and take a short differences training course to transition to the 777X.

Boeing Flight Services provides flight, maintenance and cabin safety training to more than 400 customers through its network of 16 campuses on six continents.

The 777X has 320 orders and commitments from six customers worldwide.
