October 4th, 2021 · Leave a Comment

Boeing, the City of Jacksonville and U.S. Navy leaders recently celebrated the opening of a new Boeing training systems facility in Jacksonville. The facility will enhance the company’s ability to provide customers with enhanced training solutions, including P-8 aircrew training and virtual maintenance training, and strengthens its commitment to Florida.

The Boeing Training Systems Development Center houses the development of P-8 aircrew training, as well as maintenance training for a variety of defense platforms such as P-8, a multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft, as well as F/A-18, F-15, KC-46, T-7 and Chinook.

The 23,000 square-foot renovated facility has the ability to expand its training capability for any government or commercial platform, and includes four conference rooms and two classrooms. The facility is located about three miles east of Naval Air Station Jacksonville.

Boeing will begin expanding the P-8 aircrew training development team over the next 18 months, bringing new positions to Jacksonville.

In addition to opening the Training Systems development center, Boeing’s current presence in Jacksonville includes its facility at Cecil Airport, where employees maintain, modify and upgrade aircraft for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, including the F/A-18 A-D Hornet, F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler. It is also home to a Flight Control Repair Center that provides structural repairs to F/A-18 A-F and EA-18G flight control surfaces, and where the Boeing team converts F/A-18 Super Hornets into flight demonstration aircraft for the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angel squadron. Boeing announced in December 2020 a lease agreement to construct new facilities starting in fall 2021.
