Who are the pilots of AMPA?
The Airplane Manufacturing Pilots Association (AMPA) are full time Boeing Instructor Pilots, Technical Pilots, Safety Pilots, and Simulator Pilots rated on all current Boeing models. We work closely with Boeing customers all over the world to ensure a smooth Entry Into Service (EIS) for their new Boeing airplane or fleet. Over a year prior to delivery we are interacting with the customer to determine their flight training and regulatory requirements. We deliver new airplanes, accomplish pilot base training (touch-and-goes), and remain embedded with airlines for months after initial delivery. We operate their airplanes, within their route structure, training their pilots on line operations (line assist). Our Technical Pilots write the procedures, manuals, checklists, and bulletins used every day by pilots all over the world. The Safety pilots in our unit are accident investigators who also conduct safety reviews and operational support visits to airlines worldwide.
The AMPA pilots take pride in the professional training and support they provide to customers of The Boeing Company and are proud of the quality Boeing airplanes they deliver. We understand that quality, professional training and support is paramount to flight safety and the reputation of The Boeing Company. As long as Boeing is manufacturing airplanes, our customers will expect the highest quality instruction and service, and the pilots of AMPA will be there to provide it.
