Currently, the training facility for this type is only available with Air India but does not have spare capacity to train any other pilots.
Mumbai: India’s aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has certified Boeing’s training facility in Singapore for its 787 Dreamliner plane, in the first instance of an Indian regulator certifying a foreign training facility.

This will help crew from an Indian carrier such as Vistara which has ordered the Dreamliners to obtain training from the facility.

The regular surveillance and oversight will also be done by DGCA.

Currently, the only training facility for the Boeing Dreamliner is available with its other user, national carrier Air India.
