The Doral Chamber of Commerce organized an exclusive networking event at Divieto Ristorante in the City of Doral, hosting a group of Miami’s movers and shakers, community leaders, public officials and the press, who gathered to listen to two of South Florida’s most prominent authorities on transportation, commerce and international trade.

The keynote speaker, Emilio T. González, who was recently appointed Director of Miami-Dade Aviation Department, outlined the state of Miami International Airport and shared important news about the ever-expanding business at MIA.

The total passenger traffic at Miami International Airport, Director González explained, grew 1.1 percent in the first six months of 2013 to 20.3 million travelers, led by a surge in international traffic —jumping 4.2 percent to 9.9 million passengers through June. Domestic travelers declined by 1.6 percent to 10.3 million year to date.

Miami International AirportGonzález also informed the crowd that MIA has added two new international routes already this year and is scheduled to receive four more in the second half of 2013. American Airlines began service to the Caribbean destinations of Guadeloupe and Martinique on April 6 with once-a-week service on Saturdays and is also slated to launch new routes from MIA to Milan, Italy in November and the Brazilian destinations of Curitiba and Porto Alegre in Brazil later this year. The two new Brazilian cities will be the eighth and ninth destinations in Brazil with service from MIA —the most by any U.S. airport.

Director González said that one of his major goals is to attract more international carriers from Asia and the Middle East to MIA, which would not only increase passenger traffic at the airport but also improve access and flight options to consumers travelling to that region of the world.

Boeing marked the launch of 787 customer training in Miami, site of the company’s largest commercial aviation training campus. Aeromexico and LAN Airlines are the first two customers to train on the 787 suites at the Boeing Flight Services Miami campus.

“Miami’s location at the crossroads of the Americas offers tremendous advantages as a preferred location for airlines based in Latin America, Canada and the United States.” – Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services

At an event attended by Florida Governor Rick Scott as well as a number of other federal, state and local officials, community leaders and airline customers, Boeing also established Miami as its pro forma flight training campus for the Americas — the location where airline crews will receive the initial training provided to Boeing customers for new model airplane introductions.

“Miami has always been an important Boeing training campus and the largest campus in our global network. Now it will also play an expanded role in training the pilots and technicians who will fly and maintain the groundbreaking 787 Dreamliner,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services. “Miami’s location at the crossroads of the Americas offers tremendous advantages as a preferred location for airlines based in Latin America, Canada and the United States. Customers also travel from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and China to conduct training in Miami.” Boeing has greatly enhanced its overall training capability in Florida following an announcement in March 2013 that the company would relocate training devices from Seattle to Miami.

To better serve airlines and meet growing personnel training requirements, two 787 full-flight simulators are now located at the Miami campus as well as an additional Next-Generation 737 full-flight simulator and 717, 747 and 767 simulators. An additional 777 simulator will locate in Miami later this year. These seven devices will bring total capability in Miami to 17 full-flight simulators across airplane types, making the campus one of the largest commercial flight training facilities in the world. “Aeromexico sees the expanded capabilities at the Miami campus as a very positive move,” said Max Alvarez, vice president, Fleet Negotiations, Aeromexico. “This is a very beneficial development that will allow a savings in transportation times and associated costs for our airline.”

The consolidation of Boeing flight training campuses in the Americas is designed to bring training closer to where customers operate, reducing travel times for airline crews and the costs of sending students for training.

“Boeing is adding nearly $100 million in training assets to the Miami campus, representing a significant positive impact for the local Miami-Dade economy. -” Carbary

Miami is an international hub for commercial aviation training and provides geographic diversity within the framework of Boeing’s global commercial training network – and convenience that airlines prefer. “Boeing is adding nearly $100 million in training assets to the Miami campus, representing a significant positive impact for the local Miami-Dade economy,” Carbary said. “The result will be a premier state-of-the-art training campus staffed by world-class qualified and experienced pilots and instructors all providing the highest quality training in a well-established, flexible and productive work environment.” Boeing Flight Services, a business unit of Commercial Aviation Services, operates a geographically diverse network of 20 flight and maintenance training campuses on six continents.

In addition to Miami, Boeing offers 787 training in strategically located campuses in Singapore, Shanghai and London.

About the Boeing Edge Boeing offers a comprehensive portfolio of commercial aviation services, collectively known as the Boeing Edge, bringing value and advantages to customers and the industry. Boeing Flight Services provides integrated offerings to drive optimized performance, efficiency and safety through advanced flight, maintenance and cabin safety training as well as simulator support and services through a global network of campuses on six continents.
