Boeing will partner with the Netherlands' World Class Aviation Academy (WCAA) to provide military maintenance training on fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft.

Initially, the team will provide helicopter and fixed-wing maintenance training to the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

For the training, the WCAA will acquire a CH-47 Chinook airframe, which will be converted into a maintenance training device by Boeing.

The training course will also include AH-64 Apache and non-Boeing platforms.

The team will develop courses to meet the educational needs of the aviation industry in the Netherlands and of the ROC West-Brabant.

The aircraft maintainers will be trained annually at a new WCAA maintenance training facility in Noord-Brabant, Netherlands.
