    A new training and research center was established by US aircraft manufacturer Boeing at Skolkovo.

    The center, unveiled during the Startup Village 2016 conference, will be used for training aircraft pilots and technical personnel, as well as for conducting scientific research and developing digital solutions for commercial aviation.

    The facility has already been outfitted with Next-Generation 737 and 777 full flight simulators, and more of them will be added in the future.

    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who was attending the opening ceremony, said that he was proud to take part in the event.

    "This event proves that there are things that remain outside the scope of confrontations and misunderstandings," Dvorkovich said.

    According to the 2015 estimates of the Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook, Russia and other CIS states will require 17,000 new pilots and 22,000 aircraft technicians, and facilities like this newly established center will help meet the demand.
