The Pilot & Technician Outlook is closely tied to projections for new airplane deliveries around the globe. As it does with personnel demand, the Asia Pacific region also leads the demand for new commercial airplane deliveries over the next 20 years, with 12,820 new airplanes needed by 2032 according to Boeing's 2013 Current Market Outlook.
In April 2013, Boeing announced the decision to install two new full-flight simulators—a 777 and Next-Generation 737—at its Singapore training campus. The simulators are expected to be ready for training in early to mid-2014. The added 737 training capability will help meet demand as customers in Southeast Asia as well as, Japan, Korea and China take delivery of new airplanes. Airlines in China and Indonesia, as well as in the Middle East and Africa, will benefit from the increased 777 training capacity.
