Immediately, Indonesia will urge new requirements for simulator training for Boeing Co 737 MAX pilots in concern to Lion Air crash, which took lives of 189 people in the month of October, said the country’s Transport Ministry on Thursday.

Air Transportation Director General Polana Banguningsih Pramesti told reporters that “In the past, there were three hours of computer-based training,” while referring to the requirements for pilots to switch from older versions of the 737.

She continued that the simulators would also be required in the future.

However, Ms. Pramesti noted that these Boeing 737 MAX simulators were “only available in several countries.”

Lion Air expected to develop its own 737 MAX simulator in 2019, said the Managing Director Daniel Putu.

More details awaited.
