“China is one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic aviation markets in the world, and Boeing is committed to giving the Chinese airlines the competitive advantage they need to succeed as they grow,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight
Services. “Providing new, world-class resources and training focused on the region’s 787 and 747 fleets is one way we can bring the Boeing Edge to China.”

The Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook projects the largest demand for global pilots and maintenance technicians will be in the Asia Pacific region. China’s expected requirement leads the region’s demand with a need for 72,000 new commercial airline pilots and more than 108,000 maintenance technicians over the next 20 years.

Crews from Yangtze River Express, Air China and China Cargo have completed B747-400 training. Several crews from Hainan Airlines have completed B787 pilot training.
