The linked article makes it seem as if the president of the APA, which represents AA pilots, isn't really pushing for simulator training before the planes start flying, saying that such a course would pose "logistical issues." Rather, "Carey said pilots could get computer- and video-based training before the plane returns to service and then all could get into simulators within 10 months."
