Does anyone know where the airlines have which simulators?
For example, NW has a 787 in MSP.
Where are the A320, A330, 757?
DL has a 737 in ATL
I assume most of DL's simulators are at ATL.
Please add on the list I started.

Many (most?) airlines don't own simulators and use the manufacturer's simulators. Airbus has simulators at MIA, for example, which is what Virgin America uses.

American owns the 777,767,757,737,and MD-80 simulators which are located outside of DFW I don't know if they still have the DC-10 and if they own the A-300 sims.

I know that AC has a lot at their flight training center in YYZ.


Since they also train crews in YUL, YWG, and YVR; I would imagine they have them there as well...

FedEx has theirs in MEM across from the airport on Airways Rd.

UA has them at their training center at Stapleton. This is next to the old location of the airport.
F9 contracts with CAE who has a building near Pena Blvd and 40th Avenue in Denver.

All of DL's sims are at their training facility in ATL at World Headquarters.

They have 732, 737NG, 757/767, 772, 77L, MD88/90, MD11, L1011

ASA's simulators are owned by Flight Safety International, which is right next door to DL's World Headquarters in ATL. Sims operated there on ASA's behalf (past and present) are EMB-120, ATR42/72, CRJ200, and CRJ700.

UA's simulator training center is in Denver.

US Airways has about 10 simulators in CLT for Airbus A32X and A330 and Boeing 737/757/767 aircraft. They are in the process of expanding the building so they can add some more simulators.

AS has their flight sims in Seattle just a few blocks south of SEA. CAE also has a CRJ-700 sim in the same building.

QX uses the FlightSafety DHC-8 sims at the FlightSafety location here in SEA, on the other side of the airport from the AS facility, and the CAE sim in the AS Flight Training Building.

Yup, they're at the American Airlines Flight Academy. The Flight Academy is right next door to the American Airlines Flagship University (the corporate training/conference center) and the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum.

There is also a CRJ simulator and an EMB 190 simulator in CLT as well. ZW uses the CRJ simulator for their pilots, and I think there is also a 170 simulator there for RP.

Also USAirways still has a simulator facility in PHX that was left over from the HP days, and I think most of the West pilots are still trained there.

CO does their sim work in Houston somewhere I believe.

JetBlue has a huge traning facility at MCO which I believe covers Pilots and Flight Attendants, and they also send dispatchers there for a couple of weeks as well. (For some reason they have Dispatchers due all the hands on drills that the crews do)

WN has theirs in the Flight Training Center, right next to HDQ on Seelco St. next to DAL.

They have like 7 sims...3 733s and 4 73G, I think.

Numbers might not be current.

Once NW and DL join, will they move all of the simulators to one place or leave them where they are right now?

One day most likely but not anytime soon. There isn't much room for them to move all of NWs sims down here. Though I can see them buying atleast one more 787 sim and have one here and one in MSP.



yep.
