SEATTLE --- Alteon Training, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, has announced its participation in a new training company, CasaAero Training, located in Casablanca, Morocco.


Alteon Forms CasaAero Training Centre with Royal Air Maroc
The newly formed joint venture with Royal Air Maroc will operate out of the airline's existing training center, which currently is equipped with a 737- 300/400/500 full flight simulator. Alteon will support the venture with the addition of a new 737-600/700/800 full flight simulator scheduled to be in place in the first quarter of 2005.

"We've had outstanding success working together with Royal Air Maroc on joint ventures in Morocco," said Lou Mancini, vice president and general manager, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. "We view our relationship with RAM as a fantastic example of how Boeing teams directly with our customers to bring added value to airlines who fly our family of superior airplanes."

The CasaAero Training Centre is the first training center added to the Alteon global network in 2005, following three training centers opened in 2004 in Atlanta, Georgia; Brisbane, Australia; and London Gatwick, UK.

"We are proud to be partnered with Royal Air Maroc in launching CasaAero Training," said Alteon President Pat Gaines. "Alteon's participation will ensure that the airline can increase its training capability without a large capital outlay and we will actively help further enhance aviation safety in the North African region."

RAM's home base of Casablanca continues to grow as a regional center for commercial pilot training and aircraft maintenance.

"We are pleased to join with the world's preferred training partner to expand the training solutions in the region," said Captain Abderrahmane Sadouk, VP of Operations for Royal Air Maroc.

Royal Air Maroc's Chairman and CEO Mr. Mohamed Berrada added, "Having Alteon Training as our partner is truly valuable as we look to expand our scope of business. We look forward to growing in our role as a top regional training center and furthering our own pilots' training as RAM continues to grow and prosper."

Royal Air Maroc serves 67 destinations throughout 40 countries in Europe, Africa, Middle East and North America. The company carries about four million passengers each year, thus realizing around MAD seven billion as a turnover. Royal Air Maroc is in a code-share arrangement with Air France, Delta, Emirates, Gulfair.

Alteon Training is the industry leader in partnering with the world's airlines to provide training solutions. The company provides customers an expanding and integrated services portfolio that includes flight, maintenance, and cabin-crew training.
