Currently there is only one Boeing 717-200 training provider, Boeing Edge Flight Services. Boeing is the main and only provider of training for the 717 jet that we have found. Some of the airlines that are operating the jet, such as Delta Air Lines, Qantas, Hawaiian Airlines and others, may provide training services for the aircraft. Boeing has full training options for the 717-200 that include type rating and maintenance training. Their Atlanta, GA, Miami, FL, Brisbane, Australia and Stockholm, Sweden training facilities provide training for the 717-200. These locations should also have full motion Boeing 717-200 simulators that are used in training. Visit the Boeing site to contact them to find out about Boeing 717 training. Training providers for the jet are limited because only 156 Boeing 717-200 jets were produced and there are only a few airlines flying the aircraft. More information on training for the Boeing 717-200 type rating is located here. Also the Boeing 717-200 is similar to the other DC-9 series aircraft and there are differences courses available to pilots who are flying certain DC-9 series aircraft to obtain certification on 717.
