BAA Training deploys new Boeing 737 MAX simulator in Spain
A new Boeing 737 MAX full flight simulator (FFS) manufactured by L3Harris Technologies is now ready for training at BAA Training Spain, near Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN).
“Compared to more than 200 B737NG simulators globally, approximately three dozen B737 MAX FFSs are a limited number, so we are pleased to be one of a few pilot training providers able to offer this kind of simulator training,” Aurimas Urbonas, managing director at BAA Training Spain, said.
To cater to the growing interest in the Boeing 737 MAX, BAA Training Spain will start with respective training programs before adding other MAX equipment complementary to the FFS.
The company offers the already available EASA standard Boeing 737 MAX type rating program and the soon to be launched Boeing 737 MAX from 737NG Differences Training, depending on precise needs. The training covers the Boeing 737 MAX FCC and MCAS, multiple flight deck alerts during non-normal conditions, stabilizer trim, and other crucial elements.

Early in 2022, a Boeing 737 MAX Flight Training Device will also be added to be used in combination with the corresponding FFS.
