American Airlines facing pilot training hurdles due to simulator sessions

American Airlines manifested its plan to conduct pilot simulator training during midnights as it onboards newly-hired pilots. However, the plan was opposed by the Allied Pilots Association (APA) as such constitutes a breach of contract. These simulator stints, referred to as E sessions, will be held at AA’s simulator training facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Fort Worth, Texas.

The airline aims to train 440 pilots by the end of this year!
