He toured the company’s flight simulator facilities, which allows trainees to have a simulated experience before actually flying, the Peninsula newspaper reported.

He was accompanied by Boeing Vertical Lift’s General Manager David Koopersmith, Director of the Apache project committee Brigadier General (Pilot) Ghanem bin Abdul Hadi Al Shahwani, members of the committee, and a number of ranking Qatari Armed Forces officers in charge of the project.
