“We are very pleased with the positive feedback we received during the 737 MAX in-plant acceptance. The Boeing team is impressed by our flexibility, innovative technical solutions and the collaborative approach both teams adopted to ensure the on-schedule delivery. We are excited to continue delivering a world-class, high-fidelity pilot training solution for this important commercial airline program, which will also benefit 737 Max airline operators around the world” stated George Karam, Vice President and General Manager of TRU’s Air Transport Simulation division.
