International Flight Training Center (IFTC) has begun construction on the flight training industry's first 'self-supporting' cabin trainer facility in Antalya, Turkey.
A modular building will house a Boeing 737 cabin trainer and will be powered by solar energy. It will feature LED lighting and environmentally friendly cooling and heating systems. IFTC opened the world's first 'green' flight simulator center in the city on the southern coast of the country in September 2012. The modular building design was developed in The Netherlands and will be built by local construction company Topcu, responsible for completing IFTC's initial simulator module last year. The cabin mock-up module is being constructed to support IFTC's main customer in Antalya, Turkish airline Sun Express, as well as other airlines in Turkey and the region.
