Do you believe QF will firm more 787 orders this year like ausbt is predicting?

Maybe there will be an announcement at the QANTAS AGM on Friday 28 August, 2016 as to the routes their 787-9s will be used on, either existing or new routes and any follow on orders.

It must be getting close to being just over 12 months before the first 787-9 is delivered to QANTAS. I recall that the first delivery will be in the 4th quarter of 2017. Is this correct?

The AGM is the 10th of October. Do you mean the FY results day August 24. Yes the first 787 will fly in October 2017.

Qantas buys new 787-9 flight simulator

Quote:
Qantas says it will install a new Boeing 787-9 flight simulator at its Sydney Mascot base as the airline gears up for the arrival of the next generation aircraft in 2017.
The $23 million investment in the new flight simulator, which will be used for new and recurrent training, and other training equipment was part of a new strategic partnership with the NSW government to “support efforts to develop aviation and related industries in and around Sydney Airport and at the future Western Sydney Airport”, Qantas said on Monday.

“The Dreamliner represents a new chapter for Qantas and we are delighted to announce that a new state-of-the-art flight simulator will be housed at our Mascot training centre,” Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said in a statement.
“Our flight training centre operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is overseen by a dedicated team of trainers and check captains who help ensure that Qantas pilots are among the best in the world.

“And from the end of next year, the centre will be used to train a new generation of Qantas pilots on the next generation aircraft.”

The airline group’s low-cost unit Jetstar already has a 787 simulator in Melbourne.
Qantas has ordered eight 787-9s, which will be powered by GEnx-1B engines, which also power Jetstar’s 787-8.

Pilots flying other Boeing aircraft with the rank of captain can transition to the 787 with about 44 hours of training in the simulator, Qantas said.
The oneworld alliance member also planned to recruit 170 pilots to support its Dreamliner fleet.

The first 787-9 is due to arrive in October 2017, Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans told the CAPA – Centre for Aviation Australia Pacific Aviation summit in Brisbane on August 4.

Is the Jetstar 787 sim on the old Ansett Sim Centre near Tulla?

No, it's located in the Qantas crew training base at Airport West, the "old" Ansett sim centre is not old and in fact very much operational with 13 simulators inc A320 down to B200 and SF340

With 4 787s being delivered for two (FY) years. Is realistic to assume that QF will have 2 delivered by the end of next year/every six months or could it be more. Is delivery schedules more variable than that.

Chris, I read this blog regularly and I note you ask the same questions in so many different ways... It gets repetitive and bogs down the thread. It could just be me?

Perhaps you could do like the rest of us do and wait for Qantas to make an announcement.

Very OT in a QF thread, but nice to see the Ansett name and logo still around http://www.ansettaviationtraining.com/

Would there be significant difference between the 788 and 789 simulators? I would have thought largely programming, with this new one a capacity increase.

From the CAPA summit in BNE last week.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce was the opening keynote speaker on the second day of the summit. In a Q&A session with CNN’s Richard Quest following the speech Mr Joyce discussed a wide range of topics including international expansion, the group’s fleet plan and partnerships.

As Mr Evans had highlighted the prior day, international expansion is planned for late 2017 following the delivery of Qantas’ first batch of 787-9s. Mr Joyce provided more detail, stating that there are “three potential networks” Qantas is now working through for its incoming Boeing 787-9 fleet.

“We’re talking to the airports and the states to make them successful,” he said. “There’s lots of alternatives about where we can deploy those aircraft, so we’re working through that and by the end of this calendar year we’ll be making an announcement about the route network for the 787s.”
infrastructure support from airports “is going to be critical” in the decision where to base the 787-9 fleet

Mr Joyce said infrastructure support from airports “is going to be critical” in the decision where to base the 787-9 fleet. Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney are all under consideration.

In Perth, the aircraft would be used to launch nonstop flights to London. “There’s opportunities to grow from Brisbane to the US,” Mr Joyce noted. “There’s potential out of Melbourne [with] the aircraft being able to fly from Melbourne to Dallas or add frequency from Melbourne to LA. Out of Sydney the aircraft could fly to places like Chicago.”
