Boeing's pounds 53m training centre

BOEING, the world's largest aircraft manufacturing company, is setting up a pounds 53m hi-tech pilot and cabin crew training centre in London or Gatwick.

The first Boeing training centre of its kind built outside the US is expected to attract 3,000 pilots and technicians a year when it opens with 16 sophisticated flight simulators in 2000.

It will be one of five such Boeing training centres in the world.
