Ambassador Highlights Commitment to Direct Flights, U.S. Aviation Partnerships in Visit to Garuda Training Center

U.S Ambassador Scot Marciel, accompanied by Boeing’s South East Asia President Skip Boyce and GE Indonesia’s CEO Handry Satriago, toured the Garuda Training Center campus with Emirsyah Satar, CEO of Indonesian airline Garuda, on July 6. Both GE and Boeing are partnering with Garuda to offer training and technical assistance in the forms of leadership development, maintenance capability enhancements, and pilot training. As part of the visit, the Ambassador successfully took off and landed at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport in Garuda’s Boeing 737-800 full flight simulator. Other tour highlights included viewing an integrated procedure training mock cockpit, a presentation by Garuda flight attendants, and a safety drill into Garuda’s pool. Upon leaving, the Ambassador reaffirmed the United States’ commitment under the Comprehensive Partnership to work toward direct flights between Indonesia and the United States. [U.S. State Dept.]
