Last month, Boeing-owned Alteon Training (formerly FlightSafety Boeing) announced the opening of its new $75 million training facility at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The six-acre center includes two full-motion, FAA level-D simulators for Boeing’s 717-200 and one for its 737-700/800–the latter compatible with the Boeing Business Jet. The 52,000-sq-ft facility employs 15 and can accommodate up to 200 trainees daily, including pilots, maintenance technicians and cabin crewmembers. Alteon said its first customers for the new training center include 717 operators AirTran Airways and Midwest Airlines, as well as some BBJ operators.
