Commercial airline operators now have a broader source of aviation training, thanks to a new joint marketing agreement between Jeppesen (Hall 3, C3) and Alteon - both subsidiaries of Boeing.

Ray Marzullo, Boeing Flight Services vice-president, says the joint marketing agreement is key to the company's strategy and future plans. "Being able to satisfy all of a customer's training and educational needs through the collaboration of these two firms is precisely why Boeing has acquired these industry-leading companies."

Jeppesen and Alteon offer various training at 22 locations around the world.

The Jeppesen Academy unit offers both basic and advanced courses to aircrews and flight operations management teams in areas such as human factors, international flight planning and airspace systems.


Alteon, a leader in customer- focused aviation training solutions, operates more that 70 full-flight simulators at sites around the world for pilots, technicians and cabin crews on 100-plus-seat aeroplanes.The initiative was announced at the World Aviation Training Symposium in Montreal, Canada, in May.
