Virgin Blue Flight Simulator
This state-of-the-art facility will be built next door to Brisbane Airport and is expected to take its first intake of customers by the
end of 2003. The Brisbane Training Centre will have four full-flight
simulators, which have the capability to train 4500 pilots annually.
The equipment being installed at the centre includes Boeing 737-
700/-800 and 717-200 full flight simulators.
The two-story facility will provide pilot training, aircraft maintenance training capability featuring networking and other advance technology training devices, and learning tools at the centre including workstations equipped with self-guided, computerbased training, allowing students to progress at their own pace.
