Boeing 787 flight training gears up

Boeing said on Monday that it had received approval from regulators in several countries for flight training campuses for its 787 Dreamliner, which is due for first delivery this year.

Boeing said its 787 training devices -- including flight simulators -- were ready to be used with training courses. The company has training courses in Seattle, Singapore, Tokyo, London and Shanghai.

Full-flight simulators and other flight training devices for commercial pilot training require approval from each airline's home country.

The 787 is about three years behind its original schedule, but Boeing is set to deliver the first plane to All Nippon Airways in the third quarter.
